CHARBONNEAU – Kick the bucket list

Who doesn't want to sail away? (

After the bucket list, then what? (

BUCKET LISTS have a grim quality about them. Once they’re completed, what else is there to live for?

charbonneaucolhedThey nag at you. Even if life gets in the way of completion, they sit impatiently to be done. They are potentially dangerous; things you always wanted in your youth might now be dangerous or foolhardy in later years. They represent delayed gratification; a future reward for living the right life now – a bit like heaven.

Retirement planners like bucket lists because they provide a reason why you employ them.

  1. -Read This Entire Article On The ‘Other Side.’ : Blah, blah, blah.

    -Does ANYONE have a bucket list; a plan; a vision for Kamloops, say, beyond resource extraction in twenty years; looking to the future through the people that arrive there from other destinations…only _hoping_ to become active participants in a City that could very well have major potential….

    _If_ it could only find some adequate vision….and some peoples to carry that concrete vision for the ‘getting’ of a future, for all the residents therein and for the very future of the entire City to reach beyond a resource extraction agenda, per se over time.
