Here and there on my blog and in my day-to-day life I've mentioned my "Life List."
First disclaimer is that it's not a list I actually have written down. It exists in my head and my heart.
There are simply things I wish to do or experience before I die. I have no idea how long I have to do these things, but as long as I'm breathing, I'll be seeking them out.
For instance, one thing that has been on my list since my teens is my desire to perform in the musical Godspell. It's happening now, and it's way too much fun.
I also thought it would be fun to actually write as much of my Life List as I could come up with and share it with y'all. Hopefully you will comment with some things that are on your list as well.
