Tonight I watched the move seeking a friend for the end of the world and it ended the way that I feared but left such a beautiful impression on me. I wanted the movie to have some miraculous resolution and for the world not to end at the end of it but it stayed true to reality. Sometime in the distant or maybe not so distant future this world will come to an end, either for us one at a time or all together and I don’t want my final moments on earth to be filled with regret. I want to know that I have lived my life as honestly, as kindly, and as consciously as I possibly could.
Before I die I want…
…to laugh so long and hard that I turn red, cry, and possibly pee my pants a little, take a breath and then do it again.
….to marry my best friend and forge a brave new path through the unexplored.
…to live in a house with a picket fence, a craft room/studio above the garage.
…. to make peace with the things and the people that haunt me.
