I want…


Why is there never enough time to do what you want to do?

The days are too short and filled with obligations and chores.

I want to play. I want to relax in the shade of a forest of trees, watching as the creatures of said forest play themselves.

I want to create. I want to enjoy the creative process without feelings of criticism, mostly from myself. I want to be able to spend hours upon hours creating.

I want to read more. I want to get caught up in another world and become so familiar with the characters that I forget they’re not “real”.

I want to walk along the ocean shore on the most perfect late afternoon and hang out until sunset. And when the sun does begin to set, I want the light to play with the clouds in such a way that it creates a magical, evolving canvas of beauty.

I want to actually enjoy a thunderstorm. I want to smell the rain and feel the breeze as the storm passes through.

I want to feel alive, not just present. How do we balance our responsibilities and our desires? How can we enjoy our existence while also maintaining our financial obligations?

I want to feel alive.
Not just “be” alive.


Year 2/Day 16



They give an opportunity to look at your world with a different perspective, or see something you may have been overlooking.

Something about sunsets soothes me.  My favorite spot was sitting by the ocean at sunset.  The peaceful sound of water hitting nearby rocks and splashing up on shore.  The smell of salt in the air as a breeze brushes my face.  The extraordinary colors that the sky makes just after the sun sets. 

I love watching the pinks, oranges, and purples in the west blend with the dark blues of the east.  Add in some heat lighting in the dark skies of summer and I’m at peace.
