I am putting these links to the Professor who is dying of pancreatic cancer and gave his last lecture in the fall, because this guy is so inspirational. When I first saw this I thought of a friend of mine who is fighting cancer. He has done a lot of living since he was diagnosed and has lived longer than expected. He has been an inspiration to me to follow my dreams. My biggest obstacle right now is discovering my dreams. I do not dream much. I never really dreamed big as a child so I cannot say that there are a lot of things I have dreamed of doing. I think I have spent so much of my life in survival mode, that I haven't really taken the time to dream. I need to consider this more to really discover my dreams.

I mean there are things I want to do, but are they really dreams? Many times the dreams were so unrealistic that I would just push them out of the way. I love archaeology. I love dinosaurs, museums, Egyptian things. I have wanted to see King Tut. I am planning a trip to see that exhibit in the fall. Tutankhamen and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs tour is coming to Dallas in October.

One other thing I have always wanted to do is go to the Grand Canyon. I want to take the tour down into the canyon and camp there, or go rafting down the river. I haven't done it because of my weight. Maybe this is a dream I can work on accomplishing.

As I get fit and lose weight, maybe my dreams will become realities. And just maybe I will dream more.
