Taffy's Reaperlist

Taffy's Profile:

I am a 61-year-old who lost my job of nearly 20 years, a year ago last October. It made me realize that I had just spent the last 20 years of my life treading water and not realizing my potential. Even though I've been told by many of my family members and friends that I'm too old to change my direction in life, I don't believe that. I believe that all things are possible as long as you're drawing breath. My goal now is figure out how to realize my aspirations (see my list) before I meet the Reaper face to face (not for a LONG while, I hope!). :) By the way, one of my all time favorite songs is "Don't Fear the Reaper," by Blue Oyster Cult.

Do Some Climbing
I may not make it up Half Dome, but I'd sure like to scramble up a few modest cliff sides.

I have to admit I didn't follow that link 'til just now. So THAT'S Parkour. Saw it in the movie Casino Royale.
