It's very interesting to read others' 5 things! Cool! I have done many of the things I've wanted to do. But it's always good to have an ongoing list!

1. Continue to travel internationally
2. Attend the Academy Awards to see my son (a filmmaker) receive an award
3. Master speaking Spanish
4. Lay atop the Pyramid of the Sun (first two visits I only climbed half way)
5. Retire in a small Mexican village watching over a flock of sheep (with my sweetie!)

3. Finnish making up all the prayers I had failed to do

4. Make the Hajj to Mecca

I've done them. I'm in my 70s and can die in peace. The only thing I wish I had done is become fluently bilingual, but I got too late a start to have had much chance of that.
