It has been almost three years since I wrote a post about the things I want to do before I die. Looking back, a lot of them seemed quite childish. One was going to the moon, another leaving the world a better place than I found it. Which are not bad things just very unspecific.
Some of things from the old list I have managed to accomplish in some form or another. I wrote a novel, I traveled overseas. Never started on a musical, but it is something on which to work.
Anyway, I thought I would start on a brand new Bucket List. Perhaps I will even update this one in a few years.
Get a novel published
Get a piece of fiction published
Get poetry featured in a nationally or internationally recognized journal
Travel to Turkey, particularly Istanbul
Travel to Iran, visit the beautiful mosques
Travel to Russia, see St. Petersburg
Do something to help the victims in Bhopal long term
Kiss the person I love in Time Square on New Year's Eve
Kiss the person I love in Red Square on New Year's Eve
And, what the hell, still leave the world a better place than I found it. But more specifically volunteering time and not just money.
