    ..........................
    10 days
    would you do anything different(aside from writing a will)?

    .............
    a rip off from the holy modal rounders
    "I've got my resurrecting feet, my resurrecting shoes, I believe to m soul I've got the resurrecting blues.............."

    ............
    Long ago, I went to north western U. to see Menachem Begin. Very persuasive speaker, had a funny way of holding his elbows in one position while gesturing with his forearms and hands, kinda like a bishop in bishop's robes.
    told one of my best---or worst jokes there.

    I would go live by the sea, and get away from people. I always liked the idea of dying beside the sea or ocean. Maybe being born from the womb, mabe its a idea inside to get back to water, who knows. Water makes me very uncomfortable.

    I care not about anything in this world, and people are worthless to me, so i do not care for them.

    I cannot swim as like i said i have a tremendous feeling for water, but i would not call it fear. Its like a connection.

    So what i am saying is not what you wrote, and i would just do what i felt at the time.

    Or making last changes to the will? There are people I'd like to speak to. I'd probably want to spend my last days traveling.

    Humans seem to want a form of immortality in leaving something behind to tell the future that they were here. Some have more opportunity to do such but having some notice would enable others to focus on it.

    not limited by money? hmm... I've always enjoyed vacations with my extended family, so a trip to maui would be my first choice, having everyone that matters with me there. i wouldn.t bother with the disposal service because my wife knows what i want. which also includes maui--scattering the ashes.

    If I had 10 days to live and was not limited by the lack of money I would buy a magic lantern, rub it 3 times and wish to live till I am 85.

    I'm starting to think I'd spend my last 10 days alone in the wilderness. Actually, I'd prefer to have notice so I can do that.

    I'd give the money to a charity of my choice but making sure first of all that at least 80 percent of it will go directly to those in need.

    I'd leave enough for my family as well.

    I would make understanding and seek satisfaction. Both tell of a Heaven. When I die can I live the afterlife/underworld? Can I even go to Heaven and live their even though I died like an un-God? Or will can I reincarnate for these good people? Or is that it any consciousness will end for me? If you saying my consciousness hypothetically would just end with my nature I would seriously be left in confusion and await my relief with anxiousness.

    I would spend every waking moment with my sons. I would tell them how much I love them more than life itself and I would do things with them and talk to them so that they would have memories and knowledge of who I was as their mother and as a person and most importantly what they actually mean to me as my sons and as the people they are, both different and individual. I would tell them what it first felt like the first time I ever saw them, how it felt to hold them for the first time, hear them cry, see them open their eyes, the feeling of their little fingers wrapping around my finger when I'd touch their palms, how they smelled like sweet almonds and how they would close their eyes and turn their face and rest their cheek on the palm of my hand and doze in their first baths.... What I was doing the first time they smiled, gurgled, sat up on their own, crawled and walked, the first time they said their own name, their first day at kindy and school.. And so on and so forth.. While they slept, I would write letters for them to read when they are older, with the life lessons I would have shared with them if I had been alive when they reached those milestones. I would tell them to be kind to each other and their father and other loved ones, what I would hope for their future - that they would find love and peace, health and happiness.

    Whether money was limited or not limited, that is how I would spend my last 10 days alive.
