How large is your life? We are given so many opportunities to hear that question answered by others, famous people, people who do extraordinary things or to whom interesting things happen. Yet rarely do we ask it of ourselves, or even of the people we know well and love. But our so-called everyday lives are still full of remarkable experiences, challenges, and amazing or even courageous accomplishments, large and small. We wanted to write a book of questions to find out about them, to discover the edges of our lives, to ask about the outer and inner limits that we have already experienced, or have yet to find.

What's the most imaginative thing you've ever done as an adult?
What is the least you've ever worn in public?
