Have you seen “The Bucket List?” Where Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson play cancer patients who decide to “seize the day” and work through a list of things they’ve always wanted to do before they die.

It’s an engrossing movie… at times comical and at others sad and poignant.  One I would recommend everyone sees at least once in their lives.

I decided I’d like to start my own Bucket List – or Life List, as I prefer to call it, since I hope to do these things as I embrace life as opposed to preparing to kick the bucket.

This will be an ongoing list and I’ll cross things off as I accomplish them and add things as I think of them.
