On Bucket-lists


I really must put this on my list of places to visit, I told my Mom after she sent me photographs of tulip fields in bloom. Like many others, I have a list of things to do... someday. Things that are doable, only not now.


But completing a full marathon was never on the list, because till I started running, even 10k seemed impossible.
Sitting in an un-electrified hut, eating freshly harvested peanuts and gossiping with villagers was never on it, because who even thought about such things?

Bucket-lists are great. But it's better still to let Life surprise you.

I didn't know what a drabble was!

I don't have a bucket list. I just like life :)

Great drabble as always! And I totally agree...

Natasha - John Lennon said it best: Life is just what happens to you when you're busy doing other things. I've got a bucket list, too, but in the meantime, why not enjoy what life brings...

You hit the nail on the head. Life will surprise you with great memories...if you let it.

Great! Those little surprises are what help to make life meaningful. Nice "B" word!

The bucket list just keeps growing as we learn to appreciate new experiences in life, I think. And perhaps one or two are dropped as we grow older and wiser...

Even is the bucket list is chiseled in stone, there will be surprises along the way. I love a drabble... short and sweet.

Just stopping by for the A-Z challenge - Great post! I love the title "Coffee rings everywhere," that's why I clicked.
I love bucket lists! So many buckets out there I want to collect before I go. (It's a funnier joke when Tracy Morgan delivers it.)
Best of luck, and I look forward to more!
