As I described it one day, I never thought I would see the day when I would be earning a living in my bedroom, and so it has been for six months now. As I get older, the years seem to tick by faster. It seems like only yesterday I was 20-something, suddenly I am three times that.
I mentioned in a comment on another blog recently that I fully expect, in fact one of my goals in life, is to die with items undone on my "to do" list. Having things to do makes me happy, gives purpose to my life.
I expect when I finish traveling, there will still be places I would like to visit. I do hope I have the good sense to know when to stop traveling. Then again, maybe I will be one of the lucky ones that dies silently on the return flight from someplace I have always wanted to go. Back when I was in law school I interned at a legal aid program. The office administrator and her husband took a long planned and much dreamed about trip. On the flight home, her husband was in the window seat and she thought he was sleeping, but when the plane landed he didn't wake up. He had died quietly with a dream fulfilled. A lot of people thought it was tragic, I thought it was a wonderful way to go. The flight attendants and the airline were very gracious, they are trained, and many have dealt with this before.
It is going to be a busy couple of months, that will fly by, and before we know it the end of the year holidays will be upon us.
Have you started your christmas shopping yet?
