She called this fifth attempt at swimming the same route 'A Lifelong Dream'. 64 years is a long time to hold fast to a dream. I've had a few Lifelongers but none that required so much endurance, or lean muscle, or that much water:
1) learn and memorize those Beethoven sonatas, Bach preludes and fugues, Chopin etudes and dozens more classical piano pieces......
2) survive earning another college degree well into my Adult Years.......
3) write a book/get it published/see it in a public library....
Check, Check, Check
4) run a half-marathon
5) walk a half-marathon

~Run in at least one 10K
~Keep my bookstore open ~Keep the weight off (that one could actually be in a DayLong Dream category!)
~Write two books, one contemporary, one historical
~Learn and memorize (the hardest part!) compositions I've not played before
~Travel somewhere I've never been.
Lake Como, Italy. Being here has been a YearLong Dream of mine that's been rolled over to the next year for the past 20.......
I raise a glass to all the Lifelong Dreams you've achieved and another glass (love a good wine!), to all the Lifelong Dreams you've collected and have yet to make come true.
Any fulfilled Lifelong Dreams of your own? Yearlong? Any Yet-To-Happen dreams?
