137 Days

If you had a bucket list, a list of things that had to get done, changes that needed to be made, and you gave yourself a time limit.  Could you get them done?  Or, in committing to get them done, would you know what you wanted to do?  Can you imagine change, accomplishment?  What could you do in X days, in X months?  By tomorrow?  How would you limit yourself?  Would you allow yourself to fail?  to succeed?

I have a time limit, self-imposed, nothing medical… 137 days, 3.5 months to my next birthday.  What’s on my list?

I chose the Shorter Whitman because of his work, "Song of Myself" and because of my self-deprecating sense of humor. I am under no illusion that I can write successful essays or poetry, but I have been known to write them anyway.
