Preface: I must tell you this: I am not fond of the term “Bucket List” but I am not sure what other catch phrase to use. I searched for synonyms and beyond the usual, sort of bland “Life Goal” list or “Life List” I only got slang terms for death.
If you have any suggestions, let me know.

Maybe it is because of my recent birthday, but I have been very conscious lately about what I would love to experience before I die. One is so simple but I can’t do it for myself, I need to receive it.
I have gotten better at the whole receiving gig, but I thought “If I make a visual for this, perhaps it would be even more powerful” so one of the works of art I created this week is a two-fer. Not only did I make a word-love-Valentine complete witih a poem and music, I added to it with my “Please, Manifest Before I Reach My Final Destiny” list. Too long, not as catchy as Bucket List, but I’m trying.
Here it is, a receiving goal for a future Valentine’s Day:
I did some simple editing and there just like that I have my visual request to Divinity.
I may just make a bunch and sew together a quilt… and see if that musters up a metaphor or twelve or more for the “I Don’t Want to Call it ‘Bucket List’ List.”
