Can You Finish This Sentence?

Monday, August 19, 2013

Before I die . . .

andy-chang-art-project-before-i-die


I read this article and was interested in the question and the massive response to it.

But even more so, I wondered what it means if I can't complete this sentence or answer this question.

Does it mean I have no goals, that I'm not contemplative, never self-analyze? Or does it mean I'm sublimely content, happy, and happy to be happy?

No answers here. Just questions. Thought I'd share.

    WOW!.. I never thought about (Before I die). I just live from day to day and Thank God for another day when I wake up in the morning. My goal is working on my health as long as I'm alive. I guess this is a mind game. Thanks for the pondering.

    At the moment I don't have much on my list either. I would have had a lot when I was younger, but at this point in time I'm too focused on keeping what I have as opposed to pursuing something new.

    We must be sisters in a former life because I had the EXACT same response to the wall and question as you did. I don't have a huge bucket list like other people. I really have had a full and rich life. But I don't know the answer to the original question nor the answer to our questions.

A happy feel good video about a dog and a doe who are good friends.
Originally posted by my SP Friend SammiesMom13. It's worth sharing and watching. Makes you think how silly we are to classify people into groups of race, color, etc. These two aren't even the same species.
