A few weeks ago I was able to cross off the last remaining “sight to see” that had been on my bucket list for about fifteen years – namely watching the sun rise over the Taj Mahal in India.
For many years I have accepted the premise that if you do not have something to look forward to you will die – or at least die earlier than you will if you have a bucket list. I had only three places on my list – the Taj Mahal, the Grand Canyon and St Petersburg.
My imperative now is to fill in at least three gaps to close off my new bucket list, but above all to start the planning necessary for the next eight years. The first item on my list involves planning to ensure that I attend and enjoy my 90th birthday celebrations.
