A drop in the bucket…

I made a bucket list several years ago realizing that I never actually had one before I started doing things I never knew I wanted to do. I’m a generally modest person when it comes to my life experiences because I really don’t think I’ve done all that much. I guess if we get technical, I’ve done quite a bit. Jumped out of a plane, opened a restaurant, bought a Harley, traveled overseas, driven across country several times, ballroom danced, lived on a sailboat, gone to war, gone to war again, smoked a cigar with former Miss Washington, got my pilots license…

Things I can think of that I’d like to do… Scuba dive, go to Italy, surf, bungee jump, swim with some dolphins, sail around a tropical area… I guess the list could grow as each day goes on.

There’s one thing that I would love to do however that seems mighty impossible. I want to have coffee with Jennifer Aniston. What guy wouldn’t? I don’t want to marry her or have sex with her… How cool would it be to tell my grand kids that I had a casual meeting with an ultra-celebrity? I say coffee because its really harmless. I have no idea what I’d talk about or even how to relate to someone on such a different level. How could someone like that relate to me if she even wanted to?

Some say I do nothing more than chase dreams. So what? I tend to be a bit more reserved when it comes to expressing myself but when it comes down to it, I don’t feel bad for doing random ‘out of left field’ things. Someone else doesn’t like it? Then they can judge me all they want. In fact they may be able to affect me if they really want to. I may not be the person I want to be because they pass judgement. I’ll let it happen. I won’t spend too much effort on trying to not let things bother me. It’s in our nature to be effected by things such as envy or anger or even heartache.

I don’t want to live my life via a list. I want to live my life for everything it’s worth. Maybe along the way I can itemize things and present them in a way that would make a good book, or even a shitty movie. Maybe that’s something I need to do… Be in a movie…
