I finished my current Mondo Beyondo list.  It has 28 hopes, wishes, dreams and possibilities in it, some tailored to a certain place, some not, some tailored to certain people, some not, some very distinct, some very open and I wrote them all in a beautiful blue pen and sealed them away with a kiss.  I am a great lover and admirer of lists,  but this was a very different sort of list because this list has no boundaries.  It could have said fly to the moon.  It didn’t, but it could have.

I have kept a list of things I’ve wanted to do for some time.  I started my 43 things list years and years ago.  I just brought up my last 43 things list from 2008.  I kept some of the old, scrapped some, added some new.  I started a new 43 things list this past week.  Because some of them are my Mondo Beyondo items, I’m not listing them all….
