I don’t have a bucket list. I don’t have one because the most enjoyable, unique, and memorable experiences of my life have always been unplanned. A list implies that one has a plan in place to do certain things, visit that place, have that experience. I know having a list doesn’t mean one can’t also have spontaneous wonderful moments while pursuing one’s list, it’s just that for me, the much anticipated planned activity never quite measures up to the ones that just happen on their own, serendipitously.
Today the stars aligned perfectly and provided me with an unlooked for fortuitous opportunity and if I had a bucket list, I would now be crossing an item off. I had dinner at Chez Pannise. It was lovely, beautiful place, attentive staff, fabulous meal. It was wickedly expensive and I may regret that later but not just yet.
Thanks, Leon, for aiding and abetting.
