There are too many things to learn

I want to do too much.  We went to see Against Me! – I came home wishing I still had my drumset so I could practice.  We went to see Colin Hay – I spent the evening planning to come home and play my ukulele.  I saw a poster for a dance school – I want to find adult tap classes.  We saw horses over the weekend – I want to find a new barn to pick up my lessons.  I want to learn French.  I want to learn Welsh.  I want to learn sign language.  I want to take piano lessons.

I’m a little overwhelmed by the number of things I want to do, so I retreat into reading.  That’s easy.  I already have books.

    You would think that retired people would have all the time in the world to do all the kinds of things you talk about. I have a ukulele that our neighbor Rob gave me months ago. Once a week there’s a ukulele group that plays together, teaches new people, then has dinner together. Haven’t touched the ukelele which is now gathering dust on the shelf. We have numerous opportunities in different settings to ride, but we say, let’s do that but then forget about it until we’re reminded. But I still do t seem to have enough time to read as much as I would like to. And then there’s the pool and walks along the malecón and hikes in the mountains. Must make lists.
