6318 days left … how am I doing on my living list

290 days since I took stock of how many days I have left till I turn 60. 289 since I published my “bucket list”. Actually a more apt name for that list might be “my living list”, considering my focus and intention has been on living life more fiercely to the fullest possibility doing things I want to do before I get too old to do them.

So how am I doing on my living list of 33 items?

  • Get a tattoo (done in March 2017)

  • Learn sign language
  • Log 1,000 dives (941 to go!)
