Thanks, chardy! You're very welcoming!
Preliminary phase projects? I suppose. For me, these are mostly dreams, some of which I don't really know that I'll get around to, some I certainly will. I think we should have the freedom to dismiss certain items off of our list as being unrealistic as time goes by and I refuse to restrict my "project" list to reality.
But this is what I got:
-Visit all the major national parks
-Move out of the Portland area to a quieter place
-Become a full-time writer (religious non-fiction and non-religious fiction)
-Get a book published (with real paper pages!)
-Establish a colony of homeless people, perhaps in a ghost town
-Give my wife a house and especially a kitchen where she is in charge
-Move the multitudes out of my house into their own housing
I wish these things for you too, oldkid. Your dreams are lofty and whether realistic or not, they are yours. Embrace them.
I too will put on my list things that I may or may not feasibly get to do, but if I wish it, it's worthy for the list. Thanks for the expanded insight on what our lists can mean for us.
