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 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 go to London and spend a month with friends there .
