Things I want to do before I die, time, health and funds permitting:

With the exception of writing one or both books, none of these are likely to happen for a bunch of very good reasons, money and time especially, but they're what's on my mind. Funny how they're almost all travel-oriented.

I think that, knowing you, all the travel makes perfect sense. Almost all of my bucket-list goals are travel-oriented as well.

Those seem like most excellent goals to me.

Funny, I'd been wondering if there were specific things you wanted to do before you died too. And then you post this.

I hope you get to do them all. I hope you get to do a whole lot more.

I also hope that whenever your last day comes, you are content with the life you've lived. Honestly, I hope that for all of us. It's just on my mind for you right now.

Great idea coming up with a long list. Death will have to wait... :-)

Do what you can, and yes, watch The Child do the Walk of Graduation. Make sure to embarass her when she does it, like parents are prone to do.

I hope you get to make more of those trips than you think you will.

And I'm very glad to see ODMS as the novel you'd most like to finish. I've been a very big fan of that one since I read the pitch you sent Jenn.

Hmm.... If the NZ trip comes to fruition, I propose that we team on Uyuni as a part of a return leg.

And by propose mean that I will move heaven and earth to make such happen.
