This recent episode of surgery to remove a possible cancer recurrence makes me examine my life and where my time and energy goes. I have my own bucket list of things I want to accomplish before I kick it. Although I had cancer 8 years ago, the enthusiasm for “living every day as if it’s your last” well, doesn’t last – at least for me. I did well for a while and completed several things. I finished graduate school, my writings were published several times, and I delved deeper into my spirituality.
Now it’s time to create a new list. I want to learn to play classical piano, and maybe even guitar – I have a gift for music, and haven’t taken all that seriously, but I’m ready. I want to fly again. I learned how to fly in the high dessert of CA and reached solo status. I quit when money ran out, and later my brother was killed in a plane crash… but living close to a community airport and seeing and hearing the small planes, either Cessna’s, or a Piper Cub, and especially open cockpit bi-planes with their big radial engines makes my heart race. I don’t desire to learn aerobatics like before, now I just want to buzz the neighbors… : )
Thanks for sharing this journey with me. I’d enjoy hearing what’s on your bucket list! Please email me, or call: 678-884-0524. Namste~
