Not a bucket list.



Some things I wish would happen again, but that never will:

Clipping onto the lifeline on Stella Blue and reefing the main in a blinding storm.

On a calmer day, trimming the sails perfectly and riding at the bow, pretending not to have a care in the world.

Leaning hard into a mountain turn on the Harley, then hitting 110 on a two-lane straightaway.

Getting another piece of art into the Virginia Artist Biennial at the Virginia Museum.

Holding a loving woman in my arms.

Believing that I would leave behind something that has value and meaning.

There are more, but why be boring?

One thing that WILL happen:

Outliving Hannah by 3 days, so she won’t always look for me and wonder why I left her.
