As you peruse the list above perhaps it will help you to create some dreams of yours that might come true sooner by writing them down. I took a list like this from a friend and changed all of the goals that did not ring my bell. I get it out and review it every once in a while to remind myself of some of the things I’d do if I were to take the time. The list changes as things lose their appeal. For example, several friends have told me that LSD is not that much fun, so I am losing interest in that one, at present. If you know of someone who might be able to help me reach or adjust any of these things, I would welcome your call. Who knows? With help from friends, I believe almost anything is possible, don’t you?
