A fiftieth birthday, whatever else it might be, is a milestone. It can be a warning signal, a turning point or both. It can be loudly celebrated or quietly ignored, but it cannot be denied. It is a time when many will choose to step back and take stock. The Rev. Dr. Olympia Brown had just reached that significant event with as many questions in her mind as she had years logged on the calendar. The two at the very top of the list were, should she continue as a college chaplain and professor of humanities and religion at Merriwether College, or should she leave academia and take on a full time parish ministry?

On the nonprofessional and more personal front there were more questions. Now that her two sons, Malcolm and Randall, were technically out of the safe suburban nest, her status as a not-very-swinging single was lonely. Maybe she should be more proactive about creating a little more action in that corner of her life. Maybe she should move out of her white, middle class, three-bedroom expanded Cape in the town with the good schools and buy a condo in Boston or Cambridge. That would certainly ease her commute and save money on gas.

She could take her mother’s advice, let nature take its course and wait for the universe to reveal what the future might offer—but Olympia rarely took her mother’s advice, so she eliminated that one even before she wrote it down. And so it was on a spectacular summer day in early June, she was sitting in her back yard, sipping iced tea and making a list … or maybe it was a five-year plan. Olympia hadn’t decided which. In big block letters she created three columns across the top of the sheet of paper: Done, Yet to Be Done, and Wildest Dreams/Extreme Bucket List.
