Life List Day 167 - Turn a "Hey, Let's Some Day..." Into a "Now"

There's a craft fair steps from my new house every Memorial Day weekend, and I was out for a stroll - trying not to look at anything because I'm planning to go tomorrow with friends - when I bumped into someone I haven't seen in years.

We chatted a bit, exchanged phone numbers, and said, "Let's get together soon..."

I was about to leave when I thought, "I'd really like to talk with her more. Soon never happens if you leave it at that." So I turned back and said, "You doing anything now? I'm right up the street."

She couldn't make it, but we did set a time for a few hours later ... a real get-together time that we DID keep.

As a writer, I have some serious troll-like tendencies: I'd gladly curl up in my room and bury myself in books all day. This life list has been great for pushing me out, and today was another step in creating more balance in my life.
