On more than one occasion I've been told the most popular posts on this site are the ones where I reveal something about myself. Readers appear to have enjoyed the posts I've written about my kids more than the posts about my first digital SLR camera and the tripod I bought for it.
Bottom line is I'm not comfortable writing about myself. In an effort to get over that discomfort, today I have committed to making an attempt to write about myself. The reasons for this are still formulating in my mind, but I've decided to move forward with this plan without analyzing it to death which would definitely result in the immediate stoppage of this foolhardy plan of mine.
To help me do this I agreed to participate in #Trust30, an online initiative and 30-day writing challenge that encourages you to look within and trust yourself. The idea is to use this as an opportunity to reflect on your now, and to create direction for your future. Each day they post a prompt from an original thinker and doer on RalphWaldoEmerson.me. 30 prompts from inspiring thought-leaders will guide me on my writing journey. This should be interesting. Don't be shy about checking back to see how I'm doing and to leave a comment or thought of your own.
Day 5 - Prompt authored by Chris Guillebeau - "Travel"
If we live truly, we shall see truly. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Not everyone wants to travel the world, but most people can identify at least one place in the world they’d like to visit before they die. Where is that place for you, and what will you do to make sure you get there?
This is a tough question for me. I suppose before I die I would like to visit Augusta Georgia and play golf at Augusta National where The Masters is played. As I understand it, to do this, I will need to find a member of Augusta National who will invite me to play with them. This may not be the easiest thing to do, but I am keeping my ears open and working all the possibilities.
