It’s the time of year for lists….best movies of the year, best books, new year’s resolutions…you name it, there are lists for it. It has been a big and surprising year for me as well…and so decided to do my own list….a bit different that the other lists, but then you knew it would be.
Things Karen Never Expected to do…and yet she did….in 2011
Give away 100 bicycles in Africa
Take Flying Trapeze
Have 350 daily readers for Bikiniwaxchronicles.com
Dye my hair pink
Adorn pink hair with feathers
Snowshoe at -10 degrees
Pole Dancing…well, not really pole dancing, but dance classes at pole dance studio!
Ride my bicycle 100 miles (ONE DAY)
Design and sell t-shirts (Go, Sanity committee!) See store link.
Hiking in Patagonia…maybe that’s not so unexpected…but I was the weakest hiker in the group and that is, at least for me, unexpected. Humility lessons always good.
Host a movie screening
Help Ariel move (again!). Give Jessamyn my BMW.
Conquer contact lenses
Serve up 500 Cokes, in one day. (Volunteer gig at Telluride Film Festival…clearly helped me discover a hidden talent.)
Impromptu house guests…Biker boys in Telluride…even got Derek a job! Yee-haw.
Marcy in Manhattan Beach….celebrating lives under construction.
File for divorce.
And every one of those is a good thing. Really. Love, Karen
