I wish it was summer or the sun would shine, but it is winter in upstate NY.
I wish I had started writing 25 years ago, I wasn’t ready.
I wish there was no such thing as cancer, it is the dark shadow looming ever larger as we age.
I wish all root vegetables were as organic as environmentally possible.
I wish half the people I have known and loved we’re still on the planet and others lived near me.
I wish people smiled & laughed more and sent songs like a friend sent me, because its a wonderful world, Joey Ramone version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8IoO5nkxT_4&sns=em
I wish that mice wouldn’t find their way into old country houses, but they do, they don’t know their not suppose to be here.
I wish we, myself included, were not so sarcastic, it cuts into beauty.
I wish to embrace today: the coffee my husband has waiting for me, calls & connections with people, the large work to do list, the cold beauty outside, a kiss from each of my 75 pound puppies, and maybe making a few pretty Valentine’s day cards.
