One of my favorite movies this past year was The Bucket List. The Bucket List is a 2007 comedy-drama film written by, directed by Rob Reiner and starring Jack Nicholson, Morgan Freeman, Sean Hayes, Beverly Todd, and Rob Morrow. The story follows two terminally ill men (Nicholson and Freeman) on a road trip with a wish list of things to do before they "kick the bucket."

As I was watching this again last night a comment is made in the Special Features that one person’s list at 60 may be wildly different from someone that is 20. I started thinking about this and carried it even a bit further. I believe that not only would a person’s age make a difference, but also whether they were male or female, straight or gay, Republican or Democrat, Christian or Atheist.... and on and on.

Of course, I do not necessarily want you to Open Your Soul if you are uncomfortable with that..... but I decided I would start and give my personal details along with my list. Some of you may only want to give one or two things (like male or female, etc.).




Please keep in mind... there is NO PARTICULAR ORDER.

Dave Rabbit
Age: 60

1. – Find real love
2. – Make contact with an alien species
3. – Visit the Pyramids
4. – Visit Rome
5. – Visit London
6. – Ride an “Easy Rider” Harley cross country
7. – Retrace my tours in Vietnam
8. – Visit the Great Wall of China
9. - Be on a nightly ATS MIX show LIVE
10. – Experience something that would restore my faith in humanity

As in ALL of my threads.... FLAMING will not be tolerated. Intelligent posting and discussion only PLEASE!

If we get enough intelligent participation, we might include some of the best Bucket Lists in an upcoming ATS MIX Show.

I'm glad that you initiated this. After watching the film, I meant to sit down and write out my "bucket list" but it entirely slipped my mind. I think it'll be interesting to read the lists of other ATS users; I'll post my own if and when I actually sit down and do it. For some reason, I feel reluctant to--it's almost as if doing so would force me to acknowledge that I really will one day "kick the bucket."

Great thread Dave!

This isn't something i take lightly...I've thought about this often although I've never really written it down...

Off the top of my head, here is my list...

To visit every continent on the planet, and as many countries as possible. Top of my list are Russia, Patagonia, Nepal.

To cross the Atlantic in an ocean liner...old style!

To build my own self sufficient house in the Highlands

To become really fluent in as least one other language instead of just little bits.

To build my own out in the woods altar space where I can meditate and spellcast to my little hearts content.

To live off my own home grown vegetables and beans. And to keep chickens.

To develop my spiritual connection into something really useful to other people.

To write and record many more meditations, and see where that leads....

hmm.....a complete be a scary vampy witch in a marilyn manson video....;-)

I'm sure there are about a hundred more.....

And I hope you get loads of's a really good way of making your dreams come true...write them down, and focus on them.

Lots of love!

link no particular order...

*editted to add:
New Zealander (Maori)
Catholic - though also more *faith* but not a *religion* if that makes sense (more a mish-mash of various spiritual understandings/experiences all flavoured with those of my own Maori culture and teachings)

1. Get my Diving Instructor certification

2. Drive hell-for-leather around Bathurst racetrack in Australia

3. Check out Cathedral Rock, Sedona, Arizona. (US)

4. Check out and get a photo of me standing beside the Groom Lake 'keep out blah blah' sign.

5. Visit and walk around Stonehenge. Stay overnight close by if allowed...even within it.

6. World trip...lots of place and people I'd love to see.

7. Have (well, my wife would be having, but you know what I mean) and raise a wonderful child - or children if we are so blessed. Be a good father and hopefully not mess them up too much that they require therapy well into their 30s or 40s.

8. Be debt free. Getting there.

9. Be *called* to the level of Tohunga (google it)

10. Pass on with no sense of regret or dispondancy, with no hate or anger, with no sadness, no fear, no doubts about anything...for my mind to be silent...and for my family and loved ones to be at peace.

I tell you what, Sedona is one of the most amazing places I have ever seen.
I really suggest making an effort to go there. And make sure you add sliding rock park to your itinerary.
I wish I could live there, but too many people have.

Then head north to Flagstaff.

Having taught Scuba for years for PADI, it was not on my list because he is dead..... but had he still been alive this would have definitely been on it.

Spend a month aboard Calypso and dive with Jacques Cousteau

HA! We have something in common.

I went skydiving a few times when I was 18 or so. It was great fun.
The thing that hit me was it was so QUIET up there!
I tried talking as I was floating, but I could barely hear myself.
The words floated away and there wasn't anything to hold them there.

I'd love to go again, but I'm too old and my health wouldn't allow it.

If you get a chance ... GO! It's amazing!

I didn't mean anything by that comment. I was just referencing a thread i started because there are a few other 'bucket list' items there that didn't make it here.

No worries..... when I do threads for ATS MIX material possibilities, I do not look at what others have done.... rather follow my own drummer. Would you expect anything less?
