I was talking to a friend a few days ago about things we would wish to do if given the opportunity of time, money and imagination. Now, the wishes for family and love are always a given. We were talking about wishes just for ourselves, things we would wish for if all was right with the world. Things that might seem silly to others, but would provide great joy for ourselves. My wishes are numerous so I will include some of my favorites only.
I WISH I:
Could sit on a Tuscan hillside and watch the sun come up behind olive trees
Could watch Jimmy Page's long fingers dance across guitar strings (in person).
Could travel the world for a year.
Could hold an umbrella over my sister's head again because her arm hurt too much to hold it.
Could finish my book and have it published.
Could find the magical black and white shoes I've been looking for (J-Bird will understand this one).
Could paint and sing.
Could have a piece of music written about me.
Could own a Gibson Black Beauty.
Could sail the Mediterranean.
Could own an adobe house in Santa Fe.
Could own a restaurant and cook there only when I felt like it. And those would be the nights that EVERYONE showed up.
Could stand on the streets where my grandparents were born.
So, these are just a few "me" wishes that I would like for myself. Now, tell me just one of yours. Don't be shy, I know you have at least one wish that doesn't involve anyone but yourself. I would enjoy hearing them :)
