This summer has started off with lots of fun travel for Jack and I, as we celebrate our (two!) anniversaries.
I thought I’d share some beautiful photos from our travels, and some List wordings that could help with your holidays.
The featured image from this article is of Vernal Falls, in Yosemite National Park. Believe it or not, we hiked up to the top of the falls off in the distance, on the Mist trail.
Here are the falls, again, from the top and in full view.
Jack also showed me a new discovery at the park, hiking along the Toulumne River, behind the Toulumne Lava dome.
I used the List wording for this trip and an earlier trip to Upstate New York, and the results were wonderful.
“…having the best possible holiday to, from and in______________________, from approximately __________ __________to approximately ______________________, fulfilling my wants, needs and desires, economically, easily, enjoyably and comfortably, and….”
Are we trying to chase away old age? Yes! We want to fit it all in while we still can. (Cancel, cancel, cancel.) I think I might need to do a Good/Bad on aging!
Also, we love being out in nature, hiking and enjoying its healing, theta energies. I think I may have shared this List wording with you before, but it is worth repeating:
“…enjoying experiencing the auditory, visual and kinesthetic delights of nature, fulfilling my wants, needs and desires….”
Earlier this summer, we were with rafting the Rogue River. Thank goodness Jack forgave me for hitting him across the head with a paddle, twice. That trip, I didn’t use my List: perhaps I should have!
Not all events have been fun and joy, however, as not long ago we lost our beloved cat, Choochie. He was 19, and so his passing was expected: but we soon needed the following wording on our Lists, to help us get over the loss.
“…easy and comfortably accepting the most recent transition of the being I know as….”
A long planned 6 hour jet boat trip up the Rogue River was also a good distraction. I couldn’t take too many pictures, because of the need to hold on in the rapids and during the “doughnuts!” Here is a link to Jerry’s Jet Boat Trips website in Gold Beach Oregon. Scroll down the page a bit and watch the included video, and you can share in the great experience!
I hope you have a wonderful summer, filled with fun, relaxation and the “auditory, visual and kinesthetic delights of nature.”
If the wordings and photos have inspired you to take out your List, bravo! And if you are in the area of Talent, Oregon, on July 15th, we would love to see you. Summer is a great time to take out your List and see what’s there, what needs to be added or taken away, and even to do a complete overhaul.
July 15 List Update Class: Changes in Time & Location
The venue and time have changed for the List Update Class on July 15, and we are now gathering 12 – 5 pm at the Talent Library. The address is 101 Home Street, Talent, OR. Please RSVP if you are planning to attend, as space is limited. Also, there is no food or drink allowed in the room, so either have an early lunch, or take a break during our gathering, and head out to one of the local enjoyable Talent restaurants.

Happy Summer Travels!
