My Bucket List - A Work in Progress

In everyone's life, there is some spectacular wish for a seemingly unattainable goal or future. In my life there have been many things that have touched my soul and inspired me with hope and tortured me with dreams of awaiting a future with no real certainty. The future is coming, that is a fact. Whether or not 'dreams' come true is something that must be examined before believing that you are finally where you want to be. There is nothing wrong with dreaming, for by dreaming we can find reality!

After watching the movie The Bucket List, one is inspired to consider those dreams and last-chance goals. Just as with the movie, here is my list which I will be updating as ideas come to me. Feel free to check the post again in the future or even better, suggest a few of your bucket list ideas to be added to mine!

These items are in no particular order and I know, not all are possible.
