The potential prize for the multi-state lottery is close to a trillion dollars, an unimaginable sum for most of us. Does it inspire your imagination? Do you feel compelled to try your luck now, when you didn’t think about it when it was a measly 1 or 2 million?
The question is not whether you have a good shot at winning, but what would you do if you did win. What would you buy, what would you do, who would you help?What is your long deferred dream? Some of us are quite happy with what we have and wouldn’t change much. Many of us have almost forgotten those dreams that seemed out of reach.
I like to think I would be a good steward of a large amount of money. Of course, I first consider who in my circle really needs a windfall. I would hope for more than 2 million, because it would take that much to settle those obligations. A farm for my daughter, a comfortable retirement for my brother, my son, special friends, it could go on and on.
My partner and I have so many dreams we haven’t settled on just one. The top two are to travel, take pictures and write stories about the people we meet and/or buy a big house and have a combination bed and breakfast, retreat, wellness center. Both would provide lots of opportunities to meet interesting people and to contribute to society. We both like the idea of sharing our experience and knowledge and developing a network of other venerable ones.
This blog is one way we can all share our thoughts, ideas, dreams. I look forward to hearing from you. Let me know if you win the lottery, but if you don’t, I encourage you to do whatever it is you would do anyway.
