Death. So many questions, so little time

It’s a very hard reality to face and yet intrigues so many.
Have you ever wanted to do something scary or dangerous? Skydiving, bungee jumping, white water rafting, ride the largest roller coaster in the world or tell the coast guard you’re going to look at oily birds and they can’t stop you?
Have you ever done anything out of the ordinary or are you too scared you’d pee your knickers?
Some people write down all the things they’d love to do before they die. I wonder how many things actually get crossed off that list before they kiss the dirt hello? Maybe only people who are terminally ill have such records. After all, they are usually the ones experiencing life with a sense of urgency once they find out it’s being cut short.
Do people actually fulfill the things they long for in life? Perhaps procrastination grabs hold of us all with long twisted fingers and fear paralyzes our dreams. I’ve always heard of the expression, “go with the flow.” Unfortunately, only dead fish do that. The live ones swim against the flow. Ha-ha!
Folks, if you died tomorrow what would be your biggest regret?
