My Bucket List ...

I loved this movie ... when you have Morgan and Jack together, you really can't go wrong ... but aside from the double whammy of the starring leads, The Bucket List has a sweet story (I will not contend it was a "Great film" or that it is or will be a classic ... it was a good film with a good message ...

The whole concept of writing out a list of things you want to do before you 'kick the bucket' is not a bad one ... it allows you to focus on what you've done and not done, and ensure that the important bases are covered ...

Today driving home from Portage, chillin to the music I had playing (Today's selection was ELO's Greatest Hits) on the cd player, I got thinking about my "Bucket List."

I realized that I've done many of the things that I want to do ... I've been to Egypt and Israel ... I've lived in BC on the coast and inland ... I've visited every place in Canada I want to visit except the Arctic and Newfoundland ... I've enjoyed innumerable moments with my children and my circle of friends ... I am blessed with love and friendship ... and I have learned to enjoy the moment of life as it is NOW ...

About the only thing I want to do that would be on my bucket list is to write the novels that are wiggling around inside of me ... the strongest lesson of The Bucket List is the lesson that tells us:

EMBRACE LIFE.
LIVE PRESENT TO MOMENT.
VALUE WHAT'S IMPORTANT: FAMILY AND FRIENDSHIP.
AND LIVE LIFE FULLY IN EVERY MOMENT !!

atleast that's what I've drawn from the film ... in the meantime - enjoy the song "SAY" and say to those you love what you need to say ... live life with no regrets and no looking back over your shoulder ...

Good Luck !!! And Have Fun

well, maybe if you are looking for a new job perhaps now is the time to think of an Arctic sojourn. I know, I know, I know, the children. Kids adapt. Period.

Liked the video clips, think I would like to see this movie.
