Is a Sky Dive on Your Bucket List? it's on mine!
If your like me, being diagnosed with prostate cancer was a wake up call to say the least.
Once the fear wore off and I had a plan, other considerations came up!
Realizing my time on the planet had limits I decided that there were many things I wanted
to do and see in my time remaining.
Doing a Sky Dive was one of them.
So on Saturday, June 16th I will be participating in the Free Fallin' Sky Dive for Prostate Awareness.
We will jump at the Cloverdale Airport in northern Sonoma County. We do what is called a Tandem Jump which means all we have to do is show up, as we jump in tandem with an experienced expert on our back. So I"m looking forward to the view from 12,000' and sharing the experience with 14 other daredevils. (we had hoped to get 25 jumpers, so if you are interested in participating there is still time to get involved).
What's on your bucket list? Many people I talk with say: The Northern Lights, visiting all the continents, a hot air balloon ride, visiting Yosemite. Whatever it is, go for it.
Words to live by from Jack London:
I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dryrot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.
The proper function of man is to live, not to exist.
I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them.
I shall use my time.
