The continuation of my Bucket List

When we have passions or dreams or visions, we try our hardest to make those passions and dreams come true. One of the ways that I make this happen is by having a bucket list. By writing down my dreams or visions or wishes, it becomes a visible reminder of what I want to achieve, and it also gives motivation to make them happen. Do you have a Bucket List? What's on your list? Please share with me. You may, also, read Part 1 of my Bucket List before proceeding with this list.

There’s a lot more on my list. I like keeping a bucket list because it’s really my dream list, and the dreams on this list are all ones I can make come true. There is no question but that I will one day come to the end of my life, so I want to die content that I made things happen, that I took opportunities, and that I helped others do the same. Every day is a new chance.

Have you started a bucket list? What are some of the dreams and goals you want to accomplish during your lifestime, and tips on what works for you?


16. Run a Marathon.

16. Run a Marathon.

I have had the opportunity to run a half-marathon, but running a marathon has always been a dream of mine. How about you? Have you run a marathon? What was training like? How long did you train before you ran your first marathon?

17. Milk a cow.

17. Milk a cow.

Having grown up in a small town in Jamaica, growing our own vegetables and learning how to milk a cow was the norm. I remember the taste of warm milk straight from the cow.

Learning how to milk a cow is not easy.

18. Climb Mayan Ruins.

18. Climb Mayan Ruins in Central America.

Due to my frequent travels, I have the opportunity to climb and/or explore several Mayan ruins, including Xunantunich, Altun Ha and Cahal Pech. It was definitely worth the effort, although getting to Cahal Pech and Xunantuni ch I'd say were the most adventurous trips.

19. Take an Art class.

19. Take an Art Class.

As an Art teacher, I have many opportunities to give lessons in one form or another. However, I also like to take lessons, so I have gotten certified in different areas throughout the years.

Imagine taking a class in ceramics. We are all familiar with the scene from Ghost where Demi Moore is at the wheel throwing clay and Patrick Swayze comes up behind her, right? We may not have that kind of experience, but throwing clay can be very therapeutic.

20. Write a book.

20. Write a book.

To date I have written and published one small book. I have also written a novel, which is still in the editing phase. Also in the works are a couple books on natural remedies.

Have you tried to write a book? How about a book of poetry?

There are numerous tools available online to help you get started, and to help you get it published, upon completion.

21. Go on an African Safari.

21. Go on an African Safari.

A bucket list would not be complete without the dream to go on an African Safari. As a Travel Writer, my bucket list is long and includes some very exotic places.

Don't be afraid to dream big!

22. Go to China.

22. Go to China.

I have always wanted to go to China. Having visited Taiwan many years ago, and flown over the Great Wall prior to that, it left an impression on me, and a visit to China has been on my Bucket List ever since. I recently started studying Chinese, as another bucket list item, but also because I know it will come in handy on my trip there.

23. Buy an old bus and convert it to an fancy R.V.

23. Buy an old bus and convert it to a fancy R.V.

I have always wanted to rent an R.V. and travel cross-country, but what it would be to convert an old vehicle exactly as I want it!

24. Visit a Castle.

24. Visit a Castle.

As a teenager, I had the opportunity to travel to England with the Girls' Brigade band, of which I was a member. It was such a wonderful experience, seeing the sights of London, and traveling through England to Wales. One of the most memorable experiences for me was staying in a Castle in Chelmsford for a week. The walls were thick with the history, the food was great, and if you're not afraid of "ghosts" an experience such as this should definitely be in your future.

25. Ride the Underwater Rollercoaster in Japan.

25. Ride the underwater rollercoaster in Japan.

This is on my list. I have always been fascinated by the culture of Japan, but this is now on my list. This amazing rollercoaster is located at the Cosmo Land amusement park in Yokohama, Japan. The rollercoaster features a terrifying and exciting drop into an underwater tunnel. It looks as if the riders are plunging straight into a giant pool, with water splashing up around them as they dive in. This ride is definitely not for the faint of heart!

26. Go on a hot-air balloon ride.

26. Go on a hot-air balloon ride.

Talk about seeing the world from a whole new perspective! This would be it. A hot-air balloon ride. I would love to be up there when the sun is rising above the horizon.

Hot-air balloon ride over Albuquerque, New Mexico.

27. Be part of a T.V. show audience.

27. Be part of a T.V. show audience.

The only cost is a little time and effort. Finding tickets to the show that you want to be a part of should not be that challenging, and with so many shows in existence, the list is long to choose from. The experience of being part of a live studio audience is absolutely worth it, based on what I have read.


28. Eat in an Underwater Restaurant.

28. Eat in an underwater restaurant.

My choices are:

Al Mahara, Dubai, UAE

Poseidon Undersea Resort, Fiji


29. Learn a new language.

29. Learn a new language.

Over the last few years I have undertaken quite a challenge as far as languages is concerned. Although I am fairly fluent in Spanish, I have always wanted to learn Chinese, so I have started to learn. This would also come in very handy when I make that long-overdue trip to China.

30. Throw a coin in the Trevi fountain and make a wish.

30. Throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain and make a wish.

After seeing the Trevi fountain featured in the movie, Under The Tuscan Sun, I was always intrigued, not only with the fountain, but with the area in general, and made it part of my bucket list.

How many of these have you done?

      By the way, I fully understand your sense of greater spiritual sight following your bout with lupus. Having always had only one 'seeing eye', and so, little or no actual depth perception, I realized somewhere along the line that it may have compensated by granting me more spiritual sight. It's almost come to define the term 'seer' for me. Of course, it's only my personal sense of it.

      But on a purely practical plane, I've noticed that it also provides advantages for painting, since I already see in relative 2D, so little need to translate from 3D. Also the life-long development of an extraordinary compensation-ability helps in many everyday areas in which people not needing to have that ability may struggle when things seem obstinate or unyielding to will. It's just a matter of always being almost subconsciously aware of what is coming up, judging the relative distances and placement of 'things' and challenge and/or risk and then to 'work around' it, to apply my Engineer husband's term! Otherwise, I'd be unable to walk through a room, let alone drive in a 2D world without constant catastrophe!

      As it was, I didn't drive till I was 40 and had to. It had given my ex an enormous advantage.

      My reply was too lengthy for one comment window. So I’ll continue my reply to yours at this logical break.

      I hope you do write about your experiences with angels. There is a joy and also an eager receptivity to those accounts and no rejection as being in conflict with Christianity.

      I’ve shared some details of mine at age 7 in one-on-one exchanges but might think about writing a hub about it.

      The angel-person was the first and only black person I’d ever seen in real life then. There was a disproportionately large percentage of Latinos there in my border hometown, but there were literally no black people then, in that period before WWII. The only black people I’d seen were on the movie screen. Later at the nearby military base soon after the war began, people of all races were stationed. But in 1939, there were literally no blacks.

      Yet, miraculously, my playmates must have summoned this dear black man walking by on the street near where I’d fallen into a deep hole and fractured my leg so I was incapable of climbing a ladder they’d put down for me. He came down it, scooped me up in his generous arms, carried me out and deposited me to safety. Then disappeared. Not a sign that he’d ever even been there. I never knew his name but I KNEW he was a guardian angel! I have no doubt whatsoever.

      Other details were that we neighborhood kids were playing on a nearby lot where a colonial-style house was being built. Back then, kids often played outside all day and came home for supper, no questions asked so long as they played nicely! Oh, I had some restrictions due to my fragile bones and lack of vision in one eye. But at this instance, my parents were at the ranch and I was staying with our next-door neighbors so that I’d be in town and wouldn't miss school. The neighbors' kids were among the group playing.

      We gravitated to that neighborhood lot where a southern colonial style house was under construction. There were deep foundation holes for its tall columns. All holes were dug but one, which was relatively shallow. The kids were running and jumping in that hole and yelling that they’d jumped into a deep one. So Nellieanna (the non-courageous trying to be) ran and jumped, but into a deep hole! I landed on my right leg, twisted it horribly and fractured the bones from the knee to the ankle. It was painful, my leg was encrusted with dirt mixed with blood, the hole was narrow, dark and dirty. I felt like my life was over. When I yelled for help, at first the kids just were laughing till they peered into the shallow hole and I was not in it!

      They found me in a nearby deep hole and quickly found a ladder to put down into it for me. When I couldn’t use it they must have panicked. Perhaps they felt responsible. I don’t know. But they had to have been panicked. But somehow they were led to someone who could rescue me.

      My rescuer took me to the neighbors’ house before disappearing as silently and inexplicably as he’d appeared.

      This is fascinating, Gina. I’m well aware of the disapproval in the Christian churches of reincarnation, though I’ve not met with it, really. I grew up in a Christian church. I never personally felt or feel reincarnation or past lives to be either heretical or impossible. But till I felt it as part of my own experience in my 40s when it didn’t come up for approval or disapproval, I hadn’t dwelled on it much. I definitely understand your feeling it’s freeing to discuss these topics without hesitation.

      Anyway, my personal belief has evolved and tends to be that we humans don’t know everything and the sacred records we have were written down by people for people living then and geared to their ability to understand, as well as possibly to things espoused and promoted by the writers. Not that I disbelieve or dismiss those record/writings but neither do I dismiss personal spiritual experience and my deep sense of wonder and amazement and openness to what IS as it is constantly revealed and illustrated by life. I hope that eventually ‘we’ all will actually KNOW the universal truths, but not knowing it all does not mean there are not truths and I’m OK with that. Perhaps we are not equipped to fully know and understand. In fact that IS my faith.

      I love your description of the things of Cleopatra which have drawn you. Your dressing as Cleopatra and using the milk bath she was likely to have used, and the perfume! wow! The essential oils you know she used, - and it stands to reason that essential oils would have been in her toilette and skin-care, for which she was famous. I respect your sense that you’re resurrected from her. We can’t know for sure, but the deep sense of connection and mutuality is about as good as proof as is possible. It’s not a life-or-death awareness, nor should it be; but it seems to be a life-enriching one and one which helps us better know ourselves. Nothing to quarrel with there, in my estimation.

      I’ve also been fascinated by ancient Egypt A children’s encyclopedia Mother bought me when I was very young had coverage of it and I’ve loved it ever since. The Pyramids and the people. My sister Ruth visited Egypt and brought me back some parchments and a lovely scarf which seem somehow imbued with magic.

      Cleopatra is not my obsession, but I have dressed as she for Halloween. I studied the style of dress in that era in ‘History of Fashion’ and designed & made the costume for myself. I have a webpage about Egypt, in fact, covering some of this. I clean my face with liquid whipping cream since reading in a book, ‘Beating the Age Game’, claiming that it was her cleanser, which makes sense. The availability factor and that it does a superb removal of all makeup, including heavy eye makeup, better than any commercial product. It lubricates and nourishes and swipes away daily dust or dirt from exposure if not wearing makeup. I tissue it off and follow it with lots of rinses.

      But of the Egyptians, I’m more drawn to Nefertiti and her husband, Akhenaten. He reigned as Pharaoh about 1353-1335 BC and is credited with being the first historic monotheistic leader, giving the honor to the Sun as the one god. Together they did much good for the Egyptian people, not catering to the aristocracy, but giving everyone a chance. But it stirred the ire of the polytheistic priests whom his monotheistic rule had displaced and they managed to seize the power back and to destroy most reminders that he’d even lived. I learned about him from an early online friend whose beliefs referenced him. Mine do not but I admire his forward-looking thinking and actions, amidst the then accepted ideas and methods.

      But the person of whom I’ve felt being reincarnation was Emily Dickinson, whose life mine was compared to at the height of my most prolific poetic writing when I was virtually isolated and not seeking any recognition or fame for writing, but writing for my own personal salvation, as she did. Plus my poetry itself was compared to hers, though I’d not been acquainted with her work other than when her name came up in English classes, and I think Mother had a little book of her work.

      Those comparisons which were made awoke my great interest in her, and the more I learned, the more akin I felt and began to sense deeper connections. My study of her ever since has been much more about her life and letters than her poetry, other than a few special well-known of her many poems. I have books on every part of her that is known and have studied them, especially those about her life and letters. Her privacy and isolation limited the first-hand knowledge of her, though.

      I’ve felt that I’m supposed to live forward where her life left off and when I was driven from my isolation, it felt a first step, though her isolation was self-imposed and mine was not. But the bold steps to reenter courageously beyond the confines, I felt were for both of us. As you mention, it could be just an obsession but it has felt so very actual. I haven’t asked or needed permission to experience or to feel it. You know? So I don’t offer it for or ask for permission. It’s just ‘in here’.

      Ah, yes. It’s a fact that there are people, - even otherwise good people, - who truly are draining to oneself enough to need to be distanced. But over the years, I’ve amassed the ability to set limits so that I relate well while it’s extremely rarely that those normal limits will need to be reinforced. More usually, if reasonable limits are challenged, the situation seems to fix itself so that there is no ‘drag’.

      I wouldn’t be surprised if your daughter’s fascination with the 80s may have some reincarnation connection! In fact, I recall as a teen, I was into hoop skirts and petticoats, as worn in the early-to mid 1800s. ED was born in 1830, but I was not aware of her story then. Probably it was more from GWTW and other period movies. But I was also exposed to many western movies and felt no affinity with those styles. Go figure.

      "I've also been convinced that I was a reincarnation of someone of fairly recent past life prior to my own birth, " I'm not sure if mine is reincarnation or just a mild obsession but I have always been drawn to anything from Ancient Egypt. I have dressed as Queen Cleopatra on several occasions (Halloween or costume parties). It's what I've always been drawn to. I even have a milk bath which is exactly what the Queen herself may have used during her reign (based on research)/ I also have a perfume that was given to me by a friend. This was based on a recipe that was found in the tomb of Cleopatra...and it was given to me. There are two more essential oil blends in my arsenal that are based on blends that the Queen used herself. I even felt compelled several years ago to visit an traveling exhibit of treasures of ancient Egypt. Not sure what that meant.

      I've always been cut down when I bring up the idea of reincarnation, due to the fact that I was raised Christian, and reincarnation is not in our belief system.

      True, my experiences are by no means general experiences. I remember my first experience with an angel when I was 17 years old. When I was diagnosed with lupus several years ago, I believe that my spiritual eyes became more focused or more opened. Now I see much more into the "spiritual" realm. I'm not sure if the illness caused the focus...or I became more focused so as to be able to deal with the illness. Does that make sense?

      My daughter also has a touch of clairvoyancy, but I believe she is shying away from it. I'm trying to help her with it. When I was growing up I did not have any help with my "gift," although I found out that there are others in my family who have this gift, but did not speak of it until recently.....when I though I was having a psychotic breakdown.

      You're right when you say that you can tell what a person is really like, no matter what persona they are trying to portray. I can read people very well. Some are very draining on my spirit, and I know to stay away from those people, or determine how to not let them "suck" on me too much.

      I really hold onto my experiences with angels....and I think I will write an article about it. There are three experiences with angels that really have stuck with me that I will focus on.

      Oh, I forgot to mention on the topic of reincarnation....my daughter loves the 80s. She loves the clothes from the 80s. She shops at thrift stores to find jeans from the 80s and other clothing. I've often joked with her that she was born in the wrong decade, but there might be something there on the reincarnation front.

      Nellieanna, it is so freeing to be able to speak about these topics with you. Thank you for being so open in your discussions with me. I truly appreciate that.

      That is quite definitely clairvoyant, Gina, and no, it does not sound creepy or scary to me. It's a real gift and though it could be a bit of a burden, it is a real blessing! I think that you should believe you're perfectly fine in that respect and live joyously with it.

      In fact, my sense of 'reality' is that if spiritual things exist, as many of us believe they do, then, of course, they ARE reality and natural, though that may not be discernible to people who regard them as fuzzily beyond real or who overlook them or dismiss them as super-natural. Well, that IS natural on a different plane! I have a deep sense that what is, IS. Know what I mean? Just because one doesn’t know all about it does not limit its reality.

      I become quite immersed in history and 'see' and feel it, but I attribute that to my very active visualization and involvement in thoughts of any times, past or present, as I am thinking about them. I literally work out the challenges I'll encounter doing a project I'm considering before-the-fact and when I get to those snags, I know just what to do, and it works. It saves time! It's also typical of how I internalize new information - slowly, with great probing and details and then when I 'have it', it's almost automatic and quick. I'd not be surprised if you are the same or similar.

      My mother had clairvoyance and I get some of it, but not as much or as dramatically as yours or hers. I sense much and very definitely feel people's presences who are not there, and/or are not even alive. I feel actual, realistic comfort from guardian angels and recognize from which ones it's coming, as it frequently does.

      I still hold dear an experience as a child which I thought at the time was meeting and being rescued by one of my guardian angels in real-life form. I still believe it to be so. There was no other explanation for it, literally. If it wasn't, then it was just what I'd expect from a guardian angel!

      I'm quite attuned to the actual live people as to who they ARE, no matter their role-playing cloaks and contrivances. I see through to underlying motives or agendas which define a person and which have proven to be the truth over & over, even times I tried to deny my sense of such underlying personas, often to my detriment. But those 'seeings' are not inherently either ’bad' or 'good', but they are the actual truth, and I've learned that I must take them into account.

      I've also been convinced that I was a reincarnation of someone of fairly recent past life prior to my own birth. It has been experienced as a very strong certainty. I became aware of the mission I'm supposed to fulfill for that person when I became aware of the possibility or likelihood that I was reincarnated. Beyond that, it’s unprovable. I wonder, have you had a similar experience? Any thoughts about it?

      Somehow my awarenesses and experiences seem so ordinary and realistic to me, that I'm primarily unaware that they may not be generally shared experiences for others. But I’m struck that, in your case, not only are yours not general experiences for everyone but yours are way beyond general spiritual experiences. Thank you for sharing that with me!

      Ooooooooooh! I have the uncanny ability to literally feel history.....and to feel very deeply. Sometimes that is very scary, other times exhilarating. I see angels, and have been seeing them for quite a while. I actually used a painting that I did of one of those "visits" in a recent hub.

      This might also sound creepy, but I also see spirits from time to time just wandering.

      I've had experiences of extreme deja vu, and have had those events happen. I got to the point when I thought I was having a psychotic breakdown and I went to see a psychiatrist. He determined that I was perfectly fine, and that unless these things that I was seeing were telling me to harm others or myself, to just go on. I have learnt to live with these unusual episodes or occurrences.

      Hi, Gina! Yes, I love the movie, "Bucket List"! I hope you do get to do the things on your bucket list! I fully appreciate that it's fun to be working on them.

      How wonderful that you were able to stay in the castle! I can appreciate your sense of the history. Our hosts had been married right near there in an ancient church, which we got to browse through as their guests. It was both and exhilarating and a spooky experience.

      Tell me about your clairvoyancy, please!

      Hi Nellieanna. Thank you. It's a small world, isn't it? I loved being in Chelmsford....in the castle. I remember being able to feel the history. It was exhilarating and a little creepy at the same time, because I was not aware of my clairvoyancy at the time.

      I have accomplished many of the items on this list, but am still working on a few. It is thrilling to be able to work towards these goals.

      I admire your bucket list!! Nurturing these goals is in a way, part of actually enjoying the end goals themselves.

      I picked up on your mention of having stayed in a castle in Chelmsford, because Chelmsford was very near where George and I spent a month's visit in England. In fact, where we were, South Woodham Ferrers, is part of Chelmsford!
