It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.
Alan Cohen

Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."

What I Would Like

I would like   to wear a light sweater or a light jacket and a pair of jeans and some shoes, not boots, not Uggs but just a pair of shoes. 
Perhaps  the black suede flats with brass studs  from Buenos Aires.

I would like  to carry one of my fancy schmancy purses that I love .. 
I take them down from their spot on the shelf in the closet and make sure they are well, enjoying being back in the US and I know they are anxious to be carried out in the fresh air.
Purses have feelings too !

No more of this being stuck indoors all the time.
No more of this staring at snow piling up out there ... I would like to  get dressed and take a ride !
I would like to  buy some perfume ! or how about some new color of lipstick ! 

I watch the snow pile up outside the door.
I watch snow plows drive by, leaving a small wall of snow across my driveway, locking me in.
I watch the tree limbs bend lower, with the weight of the snow pulling them down.. down ...down.

I would like to see a concert   .

I would like to go to a wonderful art museum in Williamstown,  NY. The Clark Museum.
But I never drove there by myself. 
I have not been to a museum alone in more than 40 years.

I would like  to rent a hotel room in NYC .
I would like to  take the train to town.
I would like to go to the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan and have lunch somewhere precious.

I would like  to spend the day holding a baby boy. 
Making demented noises that will make him smile at me.
Anything for one of those smiles.

I would like  the pain in my heart to stop , every time that baby boy does something new and someone is not here to see it.

I would like  to think of something new to eat besides couscous.
I would like a Bloody Mary. 

I would like to accept my friends invitation to visit Buenos Aires and stay in an apartment, rent free.

I would like to visit my friend in Portland, Oregon.

I would like to go to London and spend a month with friends there .

I would like to fall asleep tonight in less than 3 hours.

I would like to travel Back in Time.

What would you like ?
