Is it a mid-life crisis? I don't know about that, maybe more of a saving-my-life crisis. I want to live fully into my old age, not be crippled with arthritis while I vacantly drool with senility. So this will chronicle the monkey business involved in morphing into some new & improved version of myself (and I guess if it bores you too much you'll go to another site, maybe one of the ones listed below). That includes doing things I've always wanted to do but haven't gotten around to it, and things that let me feel like I am leaving the world a little bit better for having been in it. Will-power will win over wimpiness, I'll find a corner of my house where I can drown out my wails, and at the end of this, well...we'll just see.
