Life List

Apparently this is the new thing to do. Make a list of things to do...not just for the day or for the week but for your lifetime. Things you would like to learn, places to go, things you would love to experience. The philosophy is that once you get it down and share it with others, you will start actually doing those things. By showing it to other people, it will inspire them to help you accomplish your list items and to make their own lists.
