Note to self: The therapeutic effects of reading other people's to-do lists

Why is my apartment full of photo albums and folders stuffed with other people's lists? This piece in the UK Independent answers the question! "Other people's to-do lists can be endlessly fascinating – but pinpointing exactly why isn't always easy, admits Sasha Cagen, an American writer who has spent the past nine years collecting hand-written "notes to self" from hundreds of strangers." Read the full piece.

I feel kinda voyeuristic reading others to do lists...but it really does tell you something about the person.

Wonder what folks think if they read my lists...or my lists of lists???

Is everything okay? I noticed Sasha has not updated this blog in quite a long time...for her at least.

We want new lists!!!

Hope all is going well.
