There is no to-do list today. Not even something that I absolutely must do tomorrow, therefore I could do it today. Absolutely amazing!
Maybe I should put an empty sheet of paper where the list usually is to emphasize this miraculous day?

It's not a level. It's a peak. Life is an amplitude.
Thanks. Thing is, I can remember a "no To Do List day" only twice in my life. All the rest of the days are burdened.

Enjoy your peak!

I have never met you. But I am glad that you have a very good reason for smiling today.

Re: I smiled because...

I told my 6 year old daughter I was going to the hardware store. She asked me to buy her some yellow rope. Why? Because she wants to play Wonder Woman.

Oy.
