live my life in order to never have any regrets and peacefully say : be hungry for more sunshine and smiles and challenges but when you think of it be also happy as it is now

ok ... there i go ...
trip into the dessert, paint the "atomium" (i.e. an iron construction, built for the world exposition in 1958 in brussels) pink (for those people here who love pink), visit another planet, build a house under the sea (saw this in a james-bond-movie), learn as many languages as possible (which includes understanding the "finesses" of other cultures), ...

and because all this is not possible in one lifetime ... i guess i have to come back ...

Florre, although I think you meant to write desert, the spelling mistake is a much better idea, and i'm adding a trip into a dessert to my list! yummmmm

The optimist claims that we are living in the best of all possible worlds.
The pessimist fears this is true.

I am one of the very few guys I know that has mostly lived out everything I could wish.

1) I'm married to the most intellectually stimulating, funny, and beautiful woman I know.
2) I have a daughter who fills my life with insurmountable joy.
3) Ive done all those crazy sexual things most guys dream about (the wife is as much a pervert as I).
4) My name is not Bruce.
5) I climbed to the top of the Berlin wall the night it opened.
6) Ive been to an impoverished country, and it taught me to appreciate the things I have.
7) Ive visited a tropical paradise a real one, not a tourist trap like Hawaii.
8) I own several first edition printings of H. P. Lovecrafts work, signed by him.
9) I have the complete Monty Pythons Flying Circus on DVD!

One thing I would like before I die?
To be able to practice Poi for 5 minutes without hitting myself between the legs.

i understand completely Pyro, that's my goal as well. Just to be happy with everything the way it is. Throw away the expectations and desires. I wonder how much beauty and joy i miss every day because i'm too distracted with the fuddy stuff.

Strive to Love everything for exactly what it is. Even though you can never understand all the extents of anything.
