After dinner with my parents tonight, my mom pulled out a pencil and a scrap of paper. “What’s on your bucket list?” She asked me and my dad.
I’d thought about this a bit before, but my mom had never asked me. Here’s what I said:
- go on a cruise
- Go to England and Scotland (preferably during the Jane Austen festival!)
- Go to Italy
- See an opera at the Met (that was going to happen this year, but then my little sister decided to graduated from college. 🙂 )
- Go to the West Coast, like California or Hawaii. (We could combine this with item number 1 and go on a DISNEY Cruise to Hawaii!)
Another item on my list: Be in a production of Les Miserables. This is going to happen this coming summer, because one of the community theater companies I work with got the rights to the new full version of the show (not the adapted “school version” which has been out for a few years.)
I am massively excited, of course. Over the past few years I’ve also done Jekyll and Hyde and Ragtime with this company, and these are two of my “dream” shows–shows I really love. Les Miserables is also in this category. Even if I don’t get an actual “part”, the chorus stuff is amazing.
So this summer brings one Bucket List item to completion. Now about the rest of them….
