The Big List

This is the list of all the random stuff I want to do someday — things I’d just like to experience or places I want to see. Dr. Suess promises, “Oh, the places you’ll go!” and I just can’t wait. The best part is that where I go or what I do next might not even be on the list … because that’s part of life’s unpredictable adventure.
