As far as I know you only get one shot at this life. What do you want to do with it? What are your dreams? What do you want to experience? What do you want to accomplish?
As the years go by I feel more drive to live my dreams. Who knows how much more time there is? I appreciate the people who have supported my move to Panama, my travels, my bike trips, and the other sometimes unconventional activities I have undertaken.
Richard is one of these friends. He has always encouraged me and followed my activities with much enthusiasm. Richard also has dreams of his own. His health problems make it advisable to return to the US but he is in no way giving up his dreams of living life to the fullest.
Richard’s dream is life on a boat traveling the rivers of the US, making his way down to the Gulf of Mexico and along the golf coast. Consider that Richard is 74 years old, has COPD, heart trouble, and some painful joints. All this would make put a lesser person in their rocking chair, but not Richard. What an inspiration!
Richard is on a limited income though and needs some material support to make this happen. He has a boat, but he needs gear and supplies. Check out his GoFundMe page for details and to get involved.
If each of you, all my good hearted readers, would give even a few dollars, the price of a coffee or a burger, this epic dream could become a reality. What would this mean not only for Richard, but for all those other people who think their lives are over because they have medical problems. There is no better medicine than a dream, an inspiration, and the will to live! Let’s help Richard be this inspiration.
