Pursue Your Passion


Several years back, I created my first bucket list.  One of the things on it was my desire to move to FL.  While visiting my mother in Sun City Center, Fl she recalled that since a child I had wanted one of those simple block houses in Florida.  That sentiment caught me by surprise. It was then that I realized that I had waited a life time to fulfill one of my dreams.  It had been a passion my entire life.  I realized then that I had to commit to pursuing my passions.    My Florida Dreams is the story of my pursuit, my passion….my dreams.  What’s yours?  My bucket list remains incomplete.   But, I’ve learned that’s the beauty of creating a bucket list, the list evolves and changes….but, it’s a constant barometer of my outlook on life and its expectancies.  It’s a list of my heart’s desires….my passions!  What’s your passion?  Whether it’s a recreational activity, finishing your education or even getting your Master’s or PhD there are plenty of opportunities in the Sun City Center, Florida, area.

It’s been a few years since that list was created.  And I’m thrilled to look back and see the things that I’ve accomplished    One was becoming an oil paint artist.  Last year, I studied under Dorothy Dent and  certified as one  of her new teachers.  I‘ll be excited to demonstrate and teach anyone interested in learning how to oil paint  A landscape  can be painted in a few hours.  In King’s Point you’ll find any and almost any club you can imagine….I’ve seen gatherings of folks quilting, learning water color, playing bingo, playing billards, and others’ involved in the wood shop, lapidary, or ceramic studios. Golf, tennis and lawn bowling are always favorites.  Lately pickleball has become an exciting new outdoor sport.  Whatever your passion, whatever your likes, you’re likely to find it in a 55+ community.  Start your 2nd Act the way you wished it might have been.  Be yourself…. Enjoy your passion, bucket list or not!
