Making Lists.

I've been thinking a lot about practice lately. What it means; how to establish one; inherent value and secondary benefits; how to keep from getting entirely derailed by temporary derailment; how the idea of practice is or is not at odds with what might be called my occasionally impetuous nature. The general idea of deliberateness and intention as operating principles for life. I've also been making lots of to-do lists. So in the interest of formalizing my intention and intentions, here is my (current) list of life goals:

Establish a daily yoga practice
Swim from Alcatraz to SF
Hike the Pacific Crest Trail
Sail from the West Coast to Hawaii
Hitchhike (by sailboat) from Europe to the US
Write a novel
Learn how to ride a motorcycle
Get a master's degree
Own land

There. That felt good to write down.
