If I Could…

I would:

  • sing in a southern gospel quartet. I bet you would never guess this about me – but some of the most fun I’ve ever had musically is singing these amazing harmonies.
  • spend a whole week just staring at Reagan
  • go on vacation for a month to Italy with Don
  • find the time to take guitar lessons again
  • work full time trying to get Angela and Christopher published
  • go to culinary school and then open a restaurant with my smoochie
  • dance like no one was watching
  • start over
  • not have drank that frappachino five minutes ago
  • empty my closet and then go shopping (wait…I’ve done that one before)
  • give all of my wonderful staff big fat raises b/c they all deserve it 🙂
  • sing the national anthem at a nationally televised football game…yea…
  • go to Pottery Barn right now and redo my entire house and office (thanks, Millie, for making me jealous!)
  • live half of every year in Nashville singing backup for country music stars
  • get a tattoo – don’t know what of right now – but I’m feeling a little mischievous at the moment
  • write a book about the transitioning church ( I guess this is one that I could do, isn’t it?)

So – what would you do right now if you could do anything without fear of failure or retribution?

Comments – it’s the only way to show the love

    I would;
    buy a villa in Fiesole that overlooks Florence, Italy.
    Walk to the market to buy fresh bread every day.
    Cappucino and pastry for breakfast.
    Take a gondola ride with my hunky husband.
    Visit one art gallery per week.
    Sing like no one was listening.
    See my kids and grandkids more.
    Yep. That’s what I’d do.

    Take a year to write Bayou Boys for real.

    Write, sing, and play guitar for a rock band (think Iron & Wine meets Mute Math)

    Snowboard constantly.

    Fish the Gulf Stream.

    Get inked.

    See Europe, slowly, with my wife.

    Take my kids to the Caribbean.

    Design and build a house in the mountains with Hope.

    Buy a Jeep.

    Read my poetry out loud in a crowded city square.
