With Dad gone I have been thinking a lot about my own mortality. Dad lived a full live. He traveled the world, supported a family (families), and settled down in a place he could call home. I am not sure if there are things he wanted to do before leaving this Earth. I guess I should have talked to him more about his life and what he wanted to do. As a son, there is an assumption that he is old and wise and knows exactly what to do. Who am I to ask? For me, I would rather share my ideas, goals, and feelings with my family. God forbid that I should go before I complete my bucket list.
Here it is in no particular order:
- learn how to ride a motorcycle
- travel to Europe, specifically Italy
- learn how to speak Italian and French
- learn how to cook from a cooking school
- win the lotto
