Take pen in hand and lay out a wish list…

Julia Cameron, in her book The Sound of Paper, tells me, as an exercise in Wishes come true, to try this: Take pen in hand and lay out a wish list…Allow your wishes to be what they are, to range from the minuscule and easily fulfilled to the large and seemingly impossible…

Here’s mine, written by the pool on July 6. 2014

A house on the beach…

Pure, perfect expression of words in my writing, full of imagery and magic…

Enough money to travel the world and live in different countries…a year in Paris, a year in Venice, for example…

An ice-filled glass of Coke…

A menthol cigarette, just one…or two…

A chat over a cup of Earl Grey with Benedict Cumberbatch, just to hear his voice in person…

A part in one episode of Vikings or Game of Thrones or Mad Men…I can be killed off as long as I have a scene with Clive Standon, Kit Harington, or Jon Hamm…

A glass of Kendall Jackson chardonnay…

My published novel in my hand…

The summer to last for six months instead of three…

October to last forever…

Family…ah, to grow successful and famous, if they wish…

My body, to be in perfect health, despite the wine, the Coke, and that one, or two cigarettes…

The sexiest curve…

The sexiest curve on your body is your smile.

Water inside…and water outside…

Take a pitcher full of water and set it down in the water…
now it has water inside and water outside.  We mustn’t give it a name,
lest silly people start talking again about the body and
the soul.

~Kabir~

We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.

~Teilhard de Chardin

Truly, obtaining this perspective, should make life so live-able, so love-able.

i am sunlight slicing the dark
who make this night?
a forge deep in the earth-mud.

what is the body?
endurance.

what is love?
gratitude

what is hidden
in our chests?
laughter.

what else?
compassion.
