December, 2018 – Bucket List


So instead of a traditional Letter from the Editor this month I have a poem for you.  And a video.  I’ve been thinking about bucket lists.  So I wrote this poem about my own quest to check things off.  This is followed by a video of my interview with Kayla McDonnell of iFly in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where you can do indoor skydiving.  And this is followed by own experience with indoor skydiving (within the same video).  

Meanwhile, we have a bunch of terrific articles, photos and videos for you this month.  Check them out!

Bucket List 

By Krista Martinelli

Death & taxes

Of these two things we are certain

All other details are only known

By the man behind the curtain.

How do you make sure

It’s the life you want to live?

To forget how to take

And learn how to give.

Play like you mean it.

Don’t sit it out.

Why keep to a whisper

When you’d rather shout?

Go and get it, girl!

Make sure there’s nothing missed.

Cross every single thing off

Your bucket list. 


Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to you and your family!

Best Regards,

Krista Martinelli
