Star Gazing


The Spin Cycle this week is “wish list.” These are the directions Jen gave us:

“You can wish for anything, anything! Big or small, real or make believe, past, present, or future. Remember, you are not made of magic, but your wishes ARE. So find that first star, think up your wish…”

So, with the magic in mind and my mind fixed on a star….


I wish for a bit of boring, as in run of the mill, normal, non-angst, and non-drama. I wish that those with whom I live and love have as many non-anxious, edgy moments as possible and that when they do have their mood swings, they recognize it and work through it.

I wish for art to be at the center of my life. For a year (or more) to just create and focus on creating. To not be pulled into several different directions nearly every minute of every day and to not have to get up at four AM just to get two hours to myself.

I wish for a chance to travel. To mix the creating and art with a bit of travel. A road trip….

I wish for peace, starting in my own home…

For more spins on wish lists, head on over to Sprite's Keeper.
And may all your wishes come true...

Peace especially at home is something I can related to. I imagine many of us have dysfunctional times. Teenagers, dysfunctional, stress, all go together at times.
So world peace probably needs to start in your own space first.
Best wishes and Merry Christmas

Oh me too, me too. Run of the mill is what I love best, just me and the mill.

Amen to all of these wishes! As my husband's old Italian grandmother used to say while shaking her head dramatically "Peace is very difficult dolly."
