Bucket List and Tag

I am going to combine a two posts here I was tagged by Spirophita and pondering what I have to live for.

I have been feeling a little down and out wondering what is the point of struggling through one day just to struggle through the next? What is the point of life? What do I want to get out of it? What is left? Is the only point to have a few more good days? If that is the case I have already had enough....

So I spent the night pondering what is my carrot? What is going to get my ass through the next 40 years?

I have morphed this tag about six random things about me into six things I want to do before I die.

1.)Finish writing and publish two more books and publish an anthology of 2000 of my best journal entries.

2.) Successfully sell one patent or launch one business that makes money. (I have sold three and have barley broken even for the effort but I know one of these are going to pop)

3.) Have two buildings that I have designed built. I have the raw sketches. I just need a person with a hundred million dollars or more to build them. I don't even care if I get the credit for it. I just want to see them in a sky line some where in the world.

4.) Complete an a year long Asian vagabonding run that touches China, Japan, Australia and many more locations.

5.) Become fluent in Spanish and Latin dancing and enter into a contest in South America.

6.)After 20 years with the woman I love still be able to look into her eyes and know I love her and she loves me.

That is my carrot..

I think it's totally normal to feel like that from time to time. It's how one deals with it that determines whether he/she comes out of it or not. You're dealing just fine. Your list proves it.

Lemme know when you're ready to go to South America. I can cut a pretty mean rug. I need to become famous so I can go on Dancing With The Stars.

Just think of the thousands of orgasms you are still to have, that should be enough man. ;o)

You want all of those?? Or will any one suffice?

That's quite a formidable list, Brian. All I ask for is food, sex, and a touch of transcendence.

Two books related to your dreams that you might enjoy ...

Go for it - Never make your dreams too small!!

The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich (Hardcover)

Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia (Paperback)

Actually, the second one was much better on audio CD.
