Bucket List

This list took shape around my 24th Birthday.  At the time, my closest friends were in the hospital with various effects from Mitochondrial Disease.  It occurred to me then that we are more mortal that we realize and that not every day is a guarantee.  This list is not set in stone.  I can and have added to it since I posted the original.
