Me, you and your bucket list

July 12, 2017

This is for you as well as me.  I would love to hear from you (comment on this blog) about one or two things you would like to do or see before you die. YOUR TURN. What is on your bucket list? Or your questions. Or give me your whole list.

Too much of everyone’s day is taken up with minutia, too many smart or smart-alec people taking up our time and our lives. It’s good that they’re smart, and your friends are valuable, many beyond measure. But at some point, all of us need to take time for ourselves.

I did that recently, taking a trip to the Redwoods on the California coast.

I walked up to them and put my hand on them, and drove through two of them.

I call them God’s pillars of heaven. In prehistoric times, there were giant redwoods across much of the planet. These survived even the great meteor that struck earth and killed so much life on earth. Some of these giants are 2000 years old.

I walked among them and was inspired. One thing done on my bucket list. 

    1. I would love to take a month long journey across Scotland and Ireland. To have enough time to really see things. I would love to photograph the countryside, ruins, and Dublin, Edinborough, and small towns as well. See the underground tunnel system of Dublin. Find out if the soil really does resonate.

      1. Such a great idea. With your talent at photography, you could probably make a table book that people would buy. You could even have a showing here in America. My brother and his family some years ago traded homes with a man in northern England, just yards from the Scottish border. They saw a great deal ( ruins, walls, castles, seacoast, etc.) because they lived there a whole school year. He said, though in England, everyone there spoke with a Scottish brogue.
        I would love to find out if the soil does resonate, too.
        Go for it. What a great goal.
        I am sure Kilbride is Irish. I’m thinking Locklear is Scottish, maybe English. I need to do some research.
        Great to hear from you.

      1. That sounds like a really good idea. Kiss the Blarney stone, pick some four-leaf clovers, tour the Black Forest and the beautiful castles. I was able to tour Germany when I was in high school on a choir tour. I am so lucky.

        Ireland the land of the Leprechauns.
