Our Living List

Here it is:  My “Living List”!

It’s a living, breathing list which is constantly being added to, edited, updated, contemplated but most of all, used as my travel guide.
The list is long, but life is short
and there’s no reason why I shouldn’t accomplish this in my lifetime.

Why exist in life, when you can really LIVE it!
