What Would You Do?

What would you do with your life if you knew you would not fail?

There's so much I'd try to do. There just wouldn't be time enough to do them all.

Mark Twain said a lot in two of his quotes; "“Sing like no one's listening, love like you've never been hurt, dance like nobody's watching, and live like its heaven on earth.” And "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

I do try to incorporate them both in my life. The second one is perhaps a bit harder to incorporate into my life than the first one but so much more gratifying, exciting, and rewarding in the long run.

M, if I had your talent for photography and writing, I'd do what you're doing and publish a book for others who love to travel "close to the ground." That means experiencing the people and culture, not just viewing them.

The pictures of the sunflowers are spectacular and SO VanGogh!

Ruth! Good to hear from you! - I will share a secret...with digital photography there is no reason why everyone is not a good photographer. I am not "a good photographer", only willing to look more closely and feel a photo before taking it, so I am a "good looker"! So "sunflowers with the sky in the background" = How it would look if I held the camera below and shot upward?

I would be fit and at a healthy weight.
