'Cheerful Something' - Private Collection

So what do I want from life, from myself?

I want to live with Joy & Laughter, with Wonder & Awe as my constant companions. I want to feel free, with the wind caressing my face, even if that wind is supplied by the beating of the wings of death, my own death. I want it not to matter that I will die someday, because right now I am alive to the fullest.

I want to play, I want my creativity to be very active. I want to sing & dance, I want to paint or clay or whatever it takes to express my Joy. I want my Joy to be so overwhelming that it Has to be expressed.

I want to surround myself with people that I care about and who care about me. I want to love and not be afraid of it. I want to be brave enough to share myself, and have people who are open to that sharing and willing to share of themselves with me.

I want to live with lots of animals & plants. I want a garden with shade & peace, where I can sit and simply exist. I want to be in awe of trees and birds and fish. I want to notice moss and have a fern collection. I want to watch the cats, sleeping in the sun. I want to be aware of the beauty of sunsets and sunrises.

I want to finish my books and get them published. I want to do art and sell it for the benefit of non-profits.

I want to play games with people who enjoy playing games; board games and cards games and puzzles. And logic puzzles, oh yes, I’d love to share logic puzzles, working them out with others.  I never want to play games with peoples heads, hearts or well-being. Nor do I want to waste time with those that do.

I want to learn, to be avid in studying all sorts of things.  I want the joy of learning to be a constant.

I want to be present for those that I love.

I want to never be in such a hurry that I don’t notice the pain or joy of others.

I want to love life with my whole being.



  1. lovely worthy joyful inspiring desires. may they all be so for you and those you love!
