"100 Things" author dies

Dave Freeman, co-author of "100 Things to do Before You Die," died earlier this month at the age of 47 after hitting his head. I've never read the book, but I have known of it and I'm sure you have too. But this is why I've decided to take a different approach at life. Life's short; sometimes too short. I'm not going to waste it in a box just because I thought that was what I should be doing. It's important to me to do what I want to do now. Not in 10 years; not when I retire. Waiting all year for that two percent raise just doesn't cut it.

**And I will put a caveat on this, because some people do live in the moment to the point of endangering themselves or others. I'm mindful of my finances and do think ahead enough to keep myself out of the gutter.

You are right in that life is too short. I salute you for your choice to take life by the balls and just going for it. Enjoy the blog and hopefully I can work myself into a position to travel as well. I know if I put my efforts into it I can succeed. Thanks
