Today, I’ve been thinking a lot about our bucket list, the crazy mixed list of things we would like to do before we die or “kick the bucket”.  Everyone probably has a different bucket list.  What’s on your bucket list? If you’ve seen the 2007 movie, The Bucket List, with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman, you are definitely up on how a person’s background and situation affects their ultimate bucket list.  Please see the movie, if you haven’t.

As I think about my own bucket list, I think about my entire life, things I want to do, places I want to visit, and experiences that would, frankly, require time travel.  I would like to see:

  • Carmel by the Sea, a charming and artistic town, possibly a good BNB spot for a few days’ writer’s retreat.
  • The Redwoods- especially the tree with the arch cut at the bottom, so you could drive through it.  I want to look up and see the mist 300 feet above me.
  • Agatha Christie’s England, staying in a country inn for a month, photographing and writing.
  • My late mother’s childhood home as it was in 1925, on two acres of citrus and rare plants, with her parents tending the plants and cutting fresh flowers each day.

But I am at peace if these never happen.  I have seen and done many wondrous things, and I know I have done my best.  So I am square with my Maker.  I have seen:

  • Asilomar near Monterey, with its long and serene beach boardwalks
  • Bavaria of 1966, Neuschwanstein Castle
  • Carnaby Street the year miniskirts hit
  • Rehoboth Beach at dawn (Atlantic coast)
  • The Pacific coast at sunset
  • The German-French Frendship Garden in Saarbrucken, with its music-driven fountains
  • Westminster Abbey and a few Cathedrals. 
  • Market lanes in Nogales, Ensenada, and Cabo.  Ships left to dissolve and sink off the coast of Mexico. 
  • Key Largo when it still looked much as it did during the making of the  Bogart film– the original cafe’ and Florida brush. 

I have held and comforted newborns and dying patients.  I have crewed and flown in hot air balloons.  I have crewed on a sloop and been hoisted to the top of the mast, to untangle the 20′ banner.

If I see Carmel and the Redwoods, I guess that’s gravy now.  Because I’m deep in being Healthy, Happy, and Loving Lifesm!  How about you?
