LaLa’s Loop


We all have goals, wishes, and dreams. Some may actually come to fruition, while others may be a fleeting thought or will forever linger on the palate.  Here’s the evolving Loop in my mind, heart, and spirit in no particular order…

  • Publish a piece of writing…started LaLa Palooza Blog: on 07/06/15
  • Read one of my poems at an Open Mic Night
  • Create a piece of art (photos?)…experimenting w/Instagram (warmed up w/Chicago pics 07/30/15)
  • Sky Dive (Officially off the list due to hip replacement)
  • Surf: Tried in Sayulita, but only on knees
  • Play in a WSOP event (Daily Deep Stack, 6/27/17)
  • Visit Nagoya, Japan: mom born there and resided until she was 14; I’m 1/4 Japanese
  • Visit France:  Paris/Musee due Louvre; Wine!!
  • Visit Australia: Sydney Opera House and the Outback
  • Travel, travel, travel: Morocco, Barcelona, Bora Bora, Prague, New Zealand…
