At some point in my life I wanted the experience of swimming with a dolphin. I did that about ten years ago and relished every moment. The other experience in this category of sometime-in-my-life-one-time-sparkles was flying in a hot air balloon and... I did it last week. It was so delightful to see the sun rise and the glory of the fall colors over Napa Valley. I also loved the feel the perfect silence whenever the burner was off. There are plenty of other experiences on my list of life pursuits, but these two were unique in their nature and the adventure being solidly in the once-is-enough category. It was very cool to check this off and know the memories will be mine forever.
