I'm so grateful for the opportunities I have had to be all over this country and Canada and the rest of the world, including living in France for awhile and going to Antarctica. I've been around six of the seven continents. I haven't been to Africa yet, but may be going this September. I just love traveling- it opens my eyes and stretches my mind. I love seeing how other people live and how they do things. The best thing it has taught me is to be so very appreciative of what we have in America, especially the freedom.

I've accomplished a lot of the things on my bucket list (I'm an old lady)- a great marriage (pretty good for 32 years of being together), family, friends, great work, great place to live, volunteer work, a beautiful puppy who will be a year old tomorrow - but I keep adding new things as I go along. I like to keep challenging myself.

Right now the main thing for me is appreciating who and what I have in my life and maintaining my health so I can keep playing as long I am able to.

But mostly- I love playing full out and having a blast! Very different than how I was right before surgery, that's for sure.

It's going to be Ghana to do some volunteer work. A good friend of mine adopted a village there about ten years ago and has gotten them a school and a health clinic along with many other things- it's her passion. She just decided out of the blue that that was what she was going to do. She had never traveled anywhere, but just up and did it. I love her to pieces. We will be going with some other friends, there will probably be about six of us.

I don't think many people here have an experience of what profound poverty is. I used to work in inner city projects, and the people there are comparatively a lot better off than much of the rest of the world.

What has been so moving to me is how people who are in the worst of cir****tances have a joyful attitude about life.

I went to Bruges a couple of times but never went up the tower because of the scene from "In Bruges".

I'm sure I wouldn't have had any issues but I was so afraid I never tried, so next time I'd like to go up just to say it wasn't worth the fuss.

I would take a trip back to Odessa with my mother and my daughter and visit my grandmother's grave.  I would take my husband to New Orleans and party for a week.   I would rent a house in Spain and move in for a few months.  In the winter, I would go skiing in Austria and in the Summer, I would take a little house on the Mediterranean and just hang out with my family on the beach shopping at open markets and eating seafood and veggies all day.  :)  Now about that lottery ticket...
