Jun. 9th, 2010 @ 07:26 pm Tell me your dreams...
I want, in no small order:

* True wisdom to know when I am making a difference vs spinning my wheels, and when to bug out when the latter is the case.

* Acreage and a pond, preferably with well water, fruit-bearing trees, decent soil, within a twenty minute commute of something resembling civilization, all with my name on it before age 60.

* To be a published novelist, to have a completed a CD of originally produced music, and to have no less than two hours of commercially produced sci-fi video of my own creation available to the masses long before I take that long and final dirt nap.

* To have Aussie sand between my toes on my 50th birthday, and a warm Philly cheese steak in my mouth on my 75th.

* Financial independence for myself, my friends and loved ones, and anyone else whose shadow I will cross in my lifetime (sooner rather than later).

* Continued good health, both physically and spiritually.


Is that too much to ask for? I'm working on it every day, and won't stop until I get there.

What about the rest of you? Feel free to tell me your dreams.

How many acres? Would that include a quadruped from the equine group?:P

I want to produce a record, m'self. Or at least start a vocal group.

To smell Scottish heather before I'm uh, 57 -?

No. 5: I would love to be able to play Santa Claus as well.

Got pretty much everything I've wanted mate. All through my own efforts. Only a few more things on the bucket list, as it were. Most involve travel to different places. But that's just a matter of doing it.

Don't really care about financial independence.

Mine are a little more simple than that but I'll be posting them in the next day or so.

I forgot; a home of my own, and a companion to share it with.

"* Acreage and a pond, preferably with well water, fruit-bearing trees, decent soil, within a twenty minute commute of something resembling civilization, all with my name on it before age 60."

You replace the details with; Enough acreage to keep a herd of buffalo and a few horses to check on them, with a river running through it, at least an hour from any freeway, all with my name on it before age 60.

Other than that, spot on.

More an aspiration than a dream, but either normalcy or the ability to conceal the lack thereof to a point whereas societal integration is at least marginally successful.

I'd like to get control of my health and weight once again, which means keeping a job long enough to have health coverage when I need it. This means I can keep going camping when my 14 yr old nephew asks, or climb in the car and road trip around the U.S. Someday I might make it to Scotland and places not in the U.S. And I'd really like the time to hunt down that link between myself and my favorite cousin.

I dream of:

1. Living in Seattle, WA before this year is out.

2. Once the kids are grown, travelling to [in no particular order]: Germany, Alaska, and Japan.

3. All of my kids going to college.

4. Writing and publishing my first book.

5. Going back to Tampa for more than just two weeks.

6. Losing about 60 pounds. Recent developments in my friends' lives have me seriously considering the implications of my own healthiness [or lack thereof]

And lastly, but probably most importantly:

7. Seeing a reunited Genesis in concert. Peter, Steve, Phil, Mike, and Tony. And seeing the reunited boys playing 'Firth of Fifth'. If it happens before I die, great. If not, I'll just catch their sold out set in heaven someday. :)

I am amazed and delighted to see how similar we are.

God's grace and good luck as all your dreams become reality.
