There are a lot of sites out there on the web that chronicle the secret hopes and desires we all have. PostSecret is probably the best known of these with many imitators but I came across one today that unique and deeply touching that I think it stands alone.
It is called Before I Die and the premise is very simple: a Polaroid styled picture of a person with a brief caption in the white space under the image tell what the person would like to do before they die. There are the typical be famous or be incredibly rich but mixed in with those are some truly touching words.
Especially heart wrenching – or possibly heart warming – is the section of the site with images and thoughts from those in hospices.

Before I die I want to be sleeping
