He did it to me.

Here's my magnificent seven...

Seven things to do before I die.

3. See the aurora on a clear night
4. Finish reading all the books I've bought
3. Improvise fluently on the guitar in the style of Django Reinhardt.
4. See a Large Blue butterfly flying in the English Countryside.
5. Shake hands with Jimmy Page
6. See QOTSA play live
7. See a living orange-spotted emerald dragonfly

Seven things I cannot do.

1. Meet the poet Lord Byron

3. Understand how it is that we are conscious
4. Tell my dad that I miss him
