Followers!! (that is you),
I give to you The Bucket List, The Sean style.
What would a 30 something ex-world traveller, ex-mercenary and all-around ex-bum want to do before he meets the Great Beyond? Well, I guess we are all about to find out. This is going to be a bit of a semi-contemplated brain storming activity.
- Plains, Trains and Autobahns: Spend 6 months in anonymous stupor while travelling trains and sleeping in random hostels in the land of my ancestors. Sure, it is a bit euro-trashy, predictable and maybe adolescent... but isn't everything if you reduce it far enough? Let's not be cynical! Something along the lines of a Eggers novel.
- Run 100 miles. Now, to one day get my head around that. Though it seems to me from the outside, that this is something you can't quite get to, without actually doing it. That said, I guess the real challenge is the life-changing commitment to train for this sort of endeavour... and if I do it, WHEN I do it... I will keep doing it until I complete Hardrock... which is to me, the land of heaven on Earth.
- Procreation Nation. I am pretty much the luckiet, happiest person on the planet. There seems to be only one way to improve things... and that is to reproduce offspring in my image... maybe more in line with the image of Lynnea, in that new person's best interest. This is something to not put a timeline on, of course. Until it happens I'll be doing my part to give what I can...
Well, that is a pretty solid list I think. Additionally, one day I will have a topic for a book and so will write that. I heard once that it is best not to write until you have something to say. So, until that day, keep those legs moving, that heart pumping and those eyes shining!!!
And remember... we don't regret what is done,
only what we have not yet had the courage to try.
