101 in 1001

I have been thinking about things I love, things I want to do, and things I feel like I just have to do.

The idea has been around for a while, and I want to experience more of life, so why not set some big, audacious goals?  Some of them won’t surprise you, but others may leave you with the urge to raise an eyebrow or two.
