The Life List

Although I have never really kept a bucket list of places to go, ever since I was a little kid I have kept in my mind a list of things to do… a list of experiences. Because I truly believe that life experiences should not be confined to a bucket, they should develop organically and expand life. I have never really discussed any of these things with my family or friends, the ideas have just lingered in the back of my mind. Some of them are similar, yet many of them were conceived in contrast to each other. Some of the experiences I have already crossed off the list, others are on the horizon. So, I thought that it might be time to share my Life List.
