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…
