This is a tough one. There are so many things I’d love to be able to do. I have a list a mile long on what I’d fill my days with if money weren’t a factor. I’d sign up for just about every lesson under the sun-from cooking to yoga, from-tap dance to pottery. Why not? I’d love to create. Well I DID create a human, no easy thing, and she’s the coolest thing in a diaper so I guess I’m already an artist. When forced to narrow it down to just one skill, I’m torn between two things.
One: I want to kick major butt. Not boxing or Ultimate Fighting but the kind of fighting on Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. That style that is surly mystical and perhaps magical but always lethal. A style so graceful that it would be a dance if not for the bleeding afterwards. I’m not out for vengeance or anything and I’m not quite sure where I’d use this skill but just knowing I could would be awesome. I’d be one hell of a protector for my little girl too. That would feel great.
Two: I want to learn how to be a world-class guitar player of that plucking Spanish style that is so soulful and romantic. I want to pick up my instrument and tell a story. One beautiful and full of love and adventure. I want to make my baby dance. How fulfilling it would be to let everything out through complicated fingerwork producing a melody for the people around you as well as yourself.
So, what will it be…..
I’m gonna’ have to go with number two. After writing about each I found myself picturing a scene at home with my family and I was happy, not showing my impressive double flip handstand cross kick, but playing music, loving and laughing.
