Winter Passage

All through the long Winter, I dream of my garden. On the first day of Spring I dip my fingers deep into the soft earth. I can feel its energy and my spirits soar.

This journal entry is all about the WINTER QUESTION ANSWERS.

Here are the answers to the Winter Question. There is a greet variety of them. Some are humorous, some are ambitious and some are poignant. I think you will enjoy reading all of them.

"Given the resources and opportunity, what one thing do you want to do in 2010 that you've never done before?"
---------------------------------------------------------
Eradicate cursing from my vocabulary.
---------------------------------------------------------
Skydive. I'll be doing it too. It's my gift to myself after I lose over 100 pounds. I lost 83 this year. So I'm on track for doing it in the spring of '10.
----------------------------------------------------
get this place de-cluttered once and for all!!
-------------------------------------------------
to see the youngest additions to our family
------------------------------------------
to see the ocean
----------------------------------
I would take a trip around the world, blogging about my adventures, with an emphasis on the help that could be provided to each place that I traveled.
----------------------------------------------
I would like to start traveling....since I was always too busy working and raising my children and never had the time but now........I don't think I can afford it.............
-------------------------------------------
Realistically, the one thing that I've already DONE for 2010, that I've NEVER done before was buy my Disneyland Annual Premium Pass!! My son and I bought them on my birthday, he's had one before he got as a gift, I've never had one.

That's the only thing I could think of right now, but if I think of more, I'll come back!! LOL!!
----------------------------------------
I want to travel route 66 to California and then watch the whales migrate in August.
--------------------------------------------
To travel into outer space.
-----------------------------------------
My answer would be: I will be assertive to follow my heart but doing it rightly and be respected by... with the help of God's guidance of course!
------------------------------------------------
As to that question: I'd like to be breathtakingly beautiful for one hour while riding bareback on a white horse in the ocean spray of the shoreline. That's yet to happen. Yes I'm serious - deep down, there's a shallow yearning I suppose.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Go to Italy and step my feet in my Mother’s hometown of Licodia Eubea in Catania, Sicily, and I’m going…in October.
-------------------------------------------------------------
One thing in 2010? Realize the final step in a plan that I am so longing to complete--but do not have the courage(yet)to finalize.
----------------------------------------------------------
If money and time were not a problem, I'd love for Stan and I, our
companion animals, and our closest friends to take the cross country
rail line across Canada to Victoria, BC. There we would all board one of
the cruise ships headed for Alaska. Coming back the same way would make
twice the fun.
--------------------------------------------------------
get into the Actor's Studio by doing a great part like James O'Neill.
-------------------------------------------------------
I plan to start writing a book about my experiences with blood cancers, a bone marrow transplant and subsequent complications. I don't know how long it will take me to finish the book or if the result will be publishable, but I want to try anyway. -----------------------------------------------------
In 2010 I'd like to start designing and making jewelry, and storing them up for a time when I can start selling them. I have made a piece or two, however, I have not been able to put together much, and I have not been able to sell them. I won't be able to sell them for awhile, as my life is hectic, but I'd like to make some pieces, in anticipation for the time I can sell them and have my own business. That is what I want to do in 2010. Thank you for asking this important question.
--------------------------------------------------------
Winter Challenge: If resources were not a challenge, I would train to become a Red Cross volunteer and travel the world helping others.
-----------------------------------------------------------
trust.....wholeheartedly and completely trust God this year. that is my goal and my "buzz" word for this year. No matter what happens. Just trust he knows best and he is in control.
-----------------------------------------------------
I'd like to be successful in convincing people this is 2009, which in truth, it is.
--------------------------------------------------------
After reading your post I have to say...find myself.

thanks for compiling these, DB. I have to admire that one who lost 83 pounds and has 17 to go before they attempt sky diving :)

I hope spring is a good season for you this year

I know I am late, but I wasn't sure of my answer. I decided that I am finally going to throw out all of my belongings that aren't useful or lovely and try to get my apartment to a state that is organized for my disabilites. No weekend brain teaser yet? Love, Val

I'd like to do this too. Thanks for sharing, DB. It was delightful.
