Things I would like to do before I die

  • Write every day

  • Volunteer my time somewhere that has nothing to do with healthcare

  • Learn to speak a second language

  • Study philosophy

  • Get at least one more degree

  • Work on my Jon-poems and get them published

  • Do a unit of clinical pastoral education, volunteer as a chaplain

  • Do a re-write of my novel, Vivian's Disorder

  • Draw, paint, write poetry

  • Make collages from old pictures

  • Read a million, no a zillion, novels

  • Get rid of things I don't need

  • Plant things in places that I don't live

  • Visit people I love

  • Sell my home and make a new life in a new place where I can grow old manageably

  • Retire and work part time for my son in Miami

  • Spend a lot of time at the beach

  • Live in a city I have never lived in before

  • Visit Ireland and Italy

  • Burn my journals

  • Do something with my therapy tapes

  • Open a cafe-bookstore

  • Eat outdoors as often as possible

  • Stargaze on clear nights

  • Be ready for whatever is to come
