Autumn 1997 ~ A young college intern told me that it seemed to her like I was someone who had stopped dreaming. Her advice? Take some time to write a list of dreams. So I did. That was 11 years ago. I almost forgot about that list but then I found it a couple of months ago -- with an updated version stapled to it that I wrote in 2001. I suppose some people dub this the "Bucket List."
I smiled when I read this: "I want to drink a cup of coffee in a coffee shop in these places: New Orleans, LA; San Francisco, CA; New York, NY; Brooklyn, NY; Paris; London; Australia; overlooking the ocean on the Oregon Coast; Greece; Madison County, IA; Maine; Pennsylvania; Park City, UT; at a table on a train going to...;"
What's on your list of dreams?
