What friends would do...#1

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

From Joe: (USA)
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.

From Dee: (USA)
Travel the world meeting people and documenting daily life in words and photographs.

From Kathy: (USA)
If I knew that I wouldn't fail, I think that I would want to be an actress. Or maybe a rock star. but probably an actress as it does not involve so much touring. Or a personal assistant to somebody cool.

From Ruth: (USA)
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.

From Harriet: (USA)
Hhhmmmm.....personally - have more children - maybe write a children's book.
Professionally - design and open my own free standing outpatient aquatic physical therapy clinics (more than one).

This is more interesting than the clock contest. Keep 'em coming! M

Well, mine is a ditto. Travel the world, meet interesting people, write about it and publish, either articles or books. So many places to go . . . and there's a story in every one.

Have I mentioned that you really, really, really need to write about this? LL
