This picture should give you a clue as to the top “thing” I want to do before I die, and that is an encore performance by James Taylor and Carole King at the Troubadour. This duo is my number one concert must.
Since this is the 4th week of the Ultimate Blog Challenge, I have decided to have this post as the last in this series. I hope it has given you a few laughs about bucket list examples.
Below is the final Boomer Explorer series on 12 Things to do before you die:
- Pick a book that you’ve lied about having read and read it.
- When the opportunity comes along to take the second or third step in making a new friend, take it.
- Make lists of things being done by people 20 years younger and 20 years older than you. Pick 3 from each and give them a shot.
- What message would you sky-write to a beloved? Whisper it to him or her instead.
- Fly over Mt. Everest in a propeller plane.
- Explore and improve your relationship to trees. Lean on one; nickname one; eat under one; plant one with a kid.
- Consider that “Robinson” is not a particularly Swiss-sounding name for a family.
- Crack a code.
- Swim with the elephants.
- If you have a day to kill in downtown Detroit, experience at least two of the four floors of John K. King’s used and rare bookstore. Engage the staff.
- Write an impassioned letter to the editor. Get your facts straight.
- Use a porch properly; to people-watch; to read; to drink gin and Bitter Lemon; to have a directionless conversation. A stoop will do in a pinch.
And there, you have it. I’ve had such an interesting time reflecting and reporting some of the Journal’s quirky Bucket List ideas.
So, join the dialogue and let us know some of your interesting or quirky bucket list ideas.
As always, I am…the traveling Boomer Explorer.
