Last year I really wanted to make arts and culture a priority in my schedule. So I made a goal of doing something at least once a month and I kept a list of what I did. (I love list-making.) I know we’re well into 2018, but I just came across my list while organizing and the memories made me smile.
Here’s my list:
January: January was cold, dark and dreary, but I entertained myself by watching almost all of Rick Steves’ travel documentaries and day-dreaming of warmer weather.
February: My husband and I jetted off to Paris for a week so we took advantage of everything the City of Light had to offer.
March: Hillwood Mansion and Museum – Washington, D.C.
April: U. S. Army War College Library and Archives – Carlisle, PA
May: The Walters Art Museum – Baltimore, MD
July: National Museum of American History – Washington, D.C.
August: I watched several operas on YouTube
September: Visited Eastern Market – Washington, D.C.
October: National Gallery of Art and Hillwood Mansion and Museum – Washington, D.C.
December: I explored the sights and sites of Israel and then paid another visit to the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
All in all, it was a productive and fulfilling year. I was really lucky that I visited Paris, London and the Holy Land within one year.
Do you keep lists too?
