my mighty life list*

Filed under: mighty life list!

Inspired by Maggie Mason’s, of, recent partnership with Intel to get to work on her Mighty Life List (yes, those really are three different links) I tried to get my arms around a life list of my own. It has always existed and it has always been a work in progress but if I post it somewhere and reference it often and add to it and strike through it, I think it’s more likely that things will happen with some regularity. I’m lighting the fire under my own ass and squatting pretty damn close to the flame.
