    Before i die ........ 16th Mar 17 at 10:17 AM
    A few miles away from me, in St Helens, 'Art in Liverpool' have done a public art on the side of an old building and have invited people to join in.
    They've started it with the sentence ...... "Before i die, i want to"
    I think i'd finish it by saying ........ Before i die i want to fall in love.
    They've supplied the chalk, what will you write ?

    Sorry i can't do a link, perhaps someone can find it.

    That sounds really good. I hope they extend it to other cities here. Apparently it's been done in various places around the world.


    I love yours, Sam!

    Actually, that'd probably be mine, too!

    Or perhaps I'd amend it to "......... I want to be loved".

    People always give such generic, clich!d answers to questions like that.
    I bet there are a dozen "before I die, I want to LIVE!!! <3 " 's up there.


    Before I die, I want to sit in a bathtub filled with each and every one of the 57 different Heinz varieties.

    I fell in love once Sam, but it didn't last on his part. Twelve years on, I can safely say that I no longer love my ex, but I'll never regret the time we spent together (nineteen years - I was only 17 when we met). I'd like to fall in love again one day, but don't get much chance to meet anyone. I'm busy with my family and with my voluntary work, which keeps me sane!

    Before I die ............. I want to fly business class, long haul.

    I'm embarrassed that it's so materialistic.
