Then These Three.

UNO
If you say you're going to do something then do it. Don't make promises that you can't deliver on. Be on time and never make excuses. There's not a lot of wiggle room on this one. Use your powers for good, Baby.
DOS
Get out of the country. Burn your own calories and resources to make it happen, chart a course. Get a passport and know where it is at all times. Learn how to speak enough of another language to get around a foreign town using nothing but public transport. Let yourself get scared and hungry. Spend weeks watching the way other people work, live and think. Don't do any of this till you're old enough to drive.
TRES
Drink up every moment that you are given with people in places that blow the wind up your skirt. Never rush a meal that doesn't have to be rushed. Laugh and hug till it hurts. Practice spontaneity as much as you possibly can and leave room for some planning. Not the other way around. Even if it's really hard, live in the moment.

My photo

I love raindrops on roses and whatnot, but even more than that I totally dig finding dollars in clothes I haven't worn in ages, live music, social networking and search engine optimization, research, freecycle.com, homemade beer, home grown stuff, writing, talking, laughing, green movements, debate, dialog, dumpster diving, time travel, time-out chairs, psychology, meals that last for hours, pranks, astral projection, meaningful lives, the kindness of strangers, trains, trucks and tractors, cowboys, horses, deer, eagles, random occurrences, modern tragedies, small appliances, good socks and sturdy shoes, shiny objects, painting, playing stringed instruments and singing harmony, pulling perfect feather pillows out of the freezer on hot and humid Kansas summer nights, rodeos and county fairs, brokers, organics and authenticity, my kids, their kids and my huge extended family. I am a hugger and I probably laugh AND talk way too much.
