A random, eclectic mix of thoughts, feelings, observations, and experiences – LIFE

Life List

This is where I’ll keep my Life List as it develops, following the guidelines given here. I’m being very careful not to rush this list, or just add things to make it long, or to “look good.” As things come to me, I’ll add them. I’d love to see other life lists. If you have one you can share, leave a link in the comments. And feel free to comment in any way you like. 🙂
