Some time last year fellow TISM enthusiast and writer for my local newspaper The Mercury, Mr Tim Martain, was asking around for people to write a ‘Bucket List‘ for their wholly locally produced Saturday Magazine colour insert.

After a bit of pondering and some too-ing and fro-ing with him about what the Saturday Magazine would and wouldn’t publish, as well as spending a few days wondering what to write as my ‘Mini-bio’, I submitted my list.

Cut forward about six months to when I genuinely needed a professional portrait pic for publication elsewhere. So I mentioned to Tim that I really should get around to getting my pic taken. He told me that the Bucket List in the Saturday Magazine had, to paraphrase him, kicked the bucket.

  10. Write a reasonably achievable bucket list
