Sept. 20, 2018, on Facebook…

I’ve been wondering what my goal in life is, and I think I may have finally figured it out.

  1. Pay cash for a new car.
  2. Hire somebody nice to take care of the place.
  3. Pack up the wife and some gear.
  4. Start driving.
  5. Head toward someplace we don’t know.
  6. Talk and talk and look at stuff.
  7. Stop and eat.
  8. Find some peaceful place to sleep.
  9. Repeat a few hundred times.
  10. Visit some friends.
  11. Leave before they get sick of us.
  12. Drive some more.
  13. Lie down at night and feel homesick.
  14. Stare deep into the Milky Way in the middle of the Big Lonely.
  15. Spot a “For Sale” sign on the place we’ve always wanted.
  16. Pay cash for it.
  17. Park the car.
  18. Listen to the animals howl and chatter and hoot.
  19. Feel that good cold again and wonder: What’s over there?
  20. Go see.

Our friend Dave Winer commented “Please put that on your blog, it’s too good to waste on Facebook.” But at the time I wasn’t really doing that, so I didn’t.

But it appears that I’m back to putting things on a blog again, and since this list is still pretty much what I have in mind (although what would we do with the dogs? There’s a new, annoying thought), here it is.

When in doubt, go see.
