the LIST

In one-way or another, everyone has a list. A list of goals, perhaps things they hope to accomplish, see or do. This is my list; it grows daily, and as one item is checked off, three new items seem to take its place. Seems like a vicious cycle. It will not be referred to as a bucket list, as that would insinuate these are the things that I want to do before I “kick the bucket”. Instead it is merely a list of things to be accomplished so I can be satisfied with my life at an old age.
