A Monday Morning Thought

Last night I watched an (at best) interesting cartoon movie called Guardians of Ga'houl. Regardless of the lack of character building and the strange comparison of an owl to Darth Vader, there was one line and thought that I thought was worth taking home. The baby owl said "Dreams are what make us who we are."

I was thinking this morning about what my dreams are. It's been a long time since I set any big long-term goals for myself. I've actually accomplished many of my goals in the past 5 years, so it's definitely time to think big again.

Here are some that have not been done yet that I'd like to do:
Go to New York and witness/participate in a fashion photo shoot for a day
Go lobster fishing in Maine
Visit every national park in the US.
Train a horse from start to finish (I'm working on that one with my horse Tex.)
Master making bread (I suck at baking, especially bread. I can't tell you how many loaves of "bricks" I've baked trying to make bread.)
Get good at cooking some Italian foods
Visit a beautiful, non-touristy part of Italy
Visit another 3rd world country

I'll have to continue thinking about these goals and add to them as I go. But I do think it's very important to dream big. Without dreams, what do we aim for? What are some of your big goals?

Well I have done about 4 and a half of that now(the half is the National Parks). Training the horse, lobster fishing and the NYC photo shoot are just the ones I am lacking! I do bid you good luck on all of your goals though. I think you could and will have all of that done in no time.
