The Bucket List

I’m not normally one for fads, but I’ve been giving a lot of thought to creating a bucket list: a collection of items, experiences, and life scenarios I want to take part in before I die. It’s not that I feel the need to document or share my private aspirations, per sey; more so, I…

New Year’s Resolution

I normally commit to an assortment of resolutions each year, giving up on about 75% of them by April, or May if I’m feeling extra motivated.
