  3. rose breeder
  4. interpreter
  5. romance novelist
  6. lavender grower (in the south of France)
  7. plein-air painter
  8. librarian

Five lives... and a hint of a sixth.

Five lives... and a hint of a sixth.

While I’m at it, I’ll tack on a bonus half-dozen, just because it’s so fun once you get into that wide-open possibilities mode and I really couldn’t stop myself:

  1. pastry chef
  2. belly dancer
  3. interior designer
  4. wanderer
  5. independent magazine publisher
  6. creativity counselor

*If it bothers you when I break the rules, quit reading at the asterisk.



  1. Cool list! Breaking the rules can be fun!

  2. Love your list…Chef..I LOVE to cook! and creative couselor! OH! I love that one~

  3. you are funny! love that pic..thanks so much for visiting and actually eding my blog. i think no one come !!

    i’d love to be a rose breeder.. thats one I didnt think of.. hmmmm I can smell my garden

  4. Yay for rule breaking!

    You take as many lives as you like honey!

    Love Love Love that photo too.

  5. I would like to try some of your fantasy lives …especially number 6 and 7….Here’s to breakin’ the rules!

  6. I reckon that the only place to grow Lavender would be in the south of France! and break all the rules you want!

  7. Belly dancer – excellent idea! Yay for you for being able to envision so many possibilities.

  8. I love the photo you used! Can you believe I have yet to go to an aquarium where they have the jellyfish exhibits?! I must go sometime soon….they look so magical.

    You’re the second blog I came across that listed something food related (pastry chef) considering I love food so much I’m not sure why I didn’t think of something similar.

    And the life of a lavender grower would be incredible I think. Great choices! 🙂

  9. Thank you all for your kind and generous responses. Especially the encouragement to keep breaking the rules 😉

    Vanessa, you *definitely* have to visit an aquarium with a jellyfish exhibit. The last one I was at, F. had to drag me away from it. I just stood there and stared and stared — started blocking up traffic and felt bad I was hogging the window when the children behind me needed to see it. The ones that fascinated me the most were glowing neon pink, very fine lines that flickered seductively — in a pitch black tank. They were glowing in the dark! So cool.
