What do you want to do before you die?

I recently read this post: Playing B-ball with Obama: 6 steps to crossing anything off your bucket list

… and thought about it …. What is on my ‘bucket list’? What is it I want to DO before I die?

and the very first thing that occurred to me, almost immediately, was I wanted to write a novel that was made into a movie and be able to have a small hand in the movie-making process.

Just once.

Oh, yea, I fully acknowledge that my what-I-want-to-do-before-I-die wish is absurdly pie-in-the-sky. Especially considering I have written 2 short stories in my life. No novels. And the stories that I wrote weren’t even that good.

BUT. I may be a late bloomer, but I’m not dead yet :)

There’s still time for me to start. There’s still time for me to put in the work. I can still TRY.

It’s just a matter of knowing which direction I’m going.

    I keep attempting to write a Bucket List but they always tend to be short term goals – that can be achieved in a few weeks time or a few months time rather than out there ones.

    I guess there’s things like be a parent or be a grandparent but I’ve kind of fulfilled the first one by being a Foster Parent (for almost a year!!! eep!)

    Maybe I need to write the boring “Goals that can be achieved now” list and then a “goals to achieve one day before I die”
