Well...it's been a week since my last post, I'm sorry, but once in a while "life" sneaks up on me and gives me a firm slap along side my head. The last 12 days have been a pretty hard hit for me emotionally, but, I think I have things back in order now and find myself taking another good look at my life in general. I think that's what we are meant to do when "life" smacks you in the face.
I won't go into great detail here, but I did lose a good friend recently and it really threw me for a loop. I don't know why, but I foolishly thought he was invincible, I was wrong.
It has been 9 days since his death and with each day that passes, I am able to look at our times together and the friendship we shared as something truly special. I am so honored to have been one of his friends and will be forever thankful for the strength, inspiration and joy he gave me over the 20 plus years I knew him. Rest in Peace Bryon.
I love the movie "The Bucket List". I think Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman do such a fabulous job in that movie and seem to have that magical chemistry that when all is done, comes together to make a great movie.
Staying true to my "Motor-Headness", here is one of my favorite scenes from "The Bucket List":
After spending the past week in a contemplative state of mind, I realize that over the past few years I have subconsciously been creating my own "Bucket List". I'll share a few of the things on my list with you:
- I want to one day live by the ocean.
- Own a GTO (not sure on the year yet)
- See Aerosmith in concert. (soon, Steven Tyler isn't getting any younger!)
- Travel to Europe.
- Sit on a veranda, in the tropics, with Tracy and make cat calls at young men, while drinking Margaritas (very doable)
- See all my children grown, living the life that makes them happy.
Now I have to add a video of my favorite Aerosmith songs :-)
I hope you are all well. Take care.
