For me, to enjoy my life each and every day, take things as they come, good or bad, not let anything disturb the peace I have finally found.

Anything else will be things I decide to do spontaneously.

Peace of mind, in itself, is the greatest gift of all.

I have had quite enough of the other.

Gosh, what is the obsession with some people on this forum that retirees HAVE to ALWAYS be doing something; lists of something, plan, plan, plan each and every minute. Heaven forbid, anyone just live their lives without a specific list of things to do. If anyone has to do this, they may as well go back to work.

I don't own a bucket and I don't own a list.

Someday I would like to visit Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador. But I should probably visit other parts of Maine first.

Well I do have one:

1. Travel to England and Scotland and find my dead ancestors
2. See NewEngland in the Fall
3. Take some not for credit interesting college classes at a university
4. See my one and only grandchild graduate from college
5. Find an easy to get along with travel companion so I can do the first one.

I've got all the big items on my Bucket List done except travel to Peru and visit Machu Pichu. That is not a must do for me anymore.


But there are many other smaller items I've been saving for my rocking chair years. Here are five:


1. Organize the generations of family pictures and get them all on the computer.


2. Read all the saved correspondence between my mom and dad during WWII.


3. Sort through the pages of essays, poetry and short stories I've written over the years.


4. Audit some classes in beginning Norwegian.


5. Make decisions about donating family heirlooms.

5 events or experiences:

1: drinking hot apple cider while watching the auroraborealis . Seated on a lawn chair, with my family. Complete silence and awe inspiring.

2: to be a part of a team that has the cure for cancers.

3: to take my son's on a trip . So they can have a fond memory after I'm gone...

4: spend one year ...on Fiji.. just enjoying nature ...

5: be at peace with humanity...
