    Wow, great list! Also, gave me a chance to learn more about you. Thank you. I love the idea of checking back and reviewing it in 6 months.

    I am going to think of my 100 (need to spend time free thinking about that). Very inspiring!

    Love the thought you put into that. First step in fulfilling a "Bucket List" is to create one in the first place.

    Way to go ... Deb

    This is a FANTASTIC list! So many things inspired me that there are too many to count! I'm so happy to hear you've cruised the Panama canal--I've always wanted to visit more places in Latin America (I spent a summer in Mexico in 2007 and it was amazing.) I hope you get your Zen garden -- and red door. And if you ever want to practice your Spanish, let me know! I majored in Spanish literature as an undergrad.
