One Question at a Time: #4, 5 & 6

What quote do you want the next few years to look like?
This was easy. My favorite and "life quote" comes from a Mary Oliver poem that I've shared here before. It says, "When it's over, I want to say: all my life/I was a bride married to amazement./I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms. . . "

But in 2005 it would be cool to realize this one by Alexander Smith (she said with a smile), "Love is but the discovery of ourselves in others and the delight in the recognition."

What's one thing you've done that you wish you could un-do?
Oh, that's a tangled one. There would be some who would suggest I look at my current marital state and beg forgiveness for that one. But in fact, I value the things I learned from that journey. Others might point me in the direction of some social OOPS I've managed to pull off, but again, I'm not inclined to look there. I guess . . . if it's not THE one, it's definitely on a list . . . I wish I hadn't let the ties between my twin and me become so loose that I often feel disconnected from him.

What's one thing you've not done that you still have on your wish list? Yea verily the list goes on and on. This year I'm determined to see Yosemite. I want to travel in the coming decade to as many exotic locales as my stubby little legs and iron stomach will allow. I want to have a long, mesmerizing conversation with a man who stirs everything within me and feel totally confident about myself as I'm having it. I want to write something that makes people FEEL . . . and something that makes them ACT. That's a few on the current list!
