Imaginary Lives

Task 8 of week 1 of The Artist's Way is to pick 5 imaginary lives. Here they are...
  1. Snorkel tour leader on St. John, USVI. Last summer, my brother-in-law got married on the beach at Trunk Bay. What a beautiful place! I would love to live there and snorkel all the time. Even with red hair and fair skin, I am a beach person. To be on the beach full time, eating fish and seafood, and swimming would be a dream come true.



  2. Professional Chef. I love to cook for people who appreciate what I cook. If I could always choose the menu, I would love to be a professional cook. I think it would be cool to have a family style restaurant in an inn and be the chef, like Sookie on Gilmore Girls.
  3. Architect. I think architects do such cool things. A few years ago, my husband was on a tennis team full of architects. They had the neatest houses. It seems that architecture is the perfect mix of engineering and creativity.
  4. Lego Toy Designer. Someone has to come up with all those cool interpretations of Lego toys. I want to be her. I wouldn't mind doing the polymer chemistry, either. I love to play with Legos with my kids. And to get paid for that? How fun. I am thinking of building a small waterfall when we get our new house (which we have not even found, yet, so I am not holding my breath) and I want to put a Lego sea monster in it like the one in the Downtown Disney Lagoon at Disney World.

And speaking of Disney World, my last deam job is...

Imagineer at Disney World. These are the people who design all of the attractions. Disney World is one of my favorite places. I would love to set up a science exhibit hall in Epcot. Something about materials, because I think materials engineering is so cool. There could be a cool ride with different parts of the tracks made out of different things...metal, wood, ceramic, plastic... A huge shape memory alloy demonstration...it could go from Goofy to Mickey with the application of heat... Oh there are so many things that would be possible. And I could live in Celebration, which I think is really fun.

Oh...I love looking at those Lego creations...One thing I always wondered when they are building them, when do they glue them together?
