MY WISH FOR THE DAY

Today I would like to go to a magic land - to an island of peace and quiet, where words which have or can have disturbing meanings, do not exist in the local language - like power, money, sex, religion, war, drugs, violence, abuse, racism, politics - because there is no need for them. And where words like peace and freedom, equality and the right to self expression do not exist either - because those things are for granted. I would like to be small and happy and live among the tulips without worries and trusting my neighbors... I would like to sleep on a sheet of kindness and have loving dreams about friendly faces. I would like to be thankful, just thankful, without naming the recipient for my gratitude, I would like to send out smiles and receive smiles in return - yes I would like to stay there for a while, enjoying deep and meaningful and meditative breathing - then I would come back, strong and healthy of body and mind, ready to deal with reality again...

Would you like to join me?

This is another wonderful collaboration of your lovely narrative and Uri’s fascinating photography. Sure, I’d like to join you, I’d like to just relax and unwind myself, being one with nature.

I am sending you my smiling face..see it over there on the side next to my greetings!?!

The world we are wishing for seems to be getting farther and farther away. We can only hope that like minded people gather in places like your blog and send positive energy to the universe. Do you believe in the concept of Prayer Flags?

Be well. I wish you serenity.
xx, Carol

hi yael, i thought i already left a messg. here, well now's the time. these are my wishes too and probably a lot more of us. such a wondrous post that i thought i left words here...now,,,,courageous: you are something else, you cracked me up. i do the very same thing...look up words all the time. our daughter did the same thing when she lived at home and we'd all learn and laugh at all the different meanings. there's just something in a word, a saying goes. mine is LOVE.....to YOU! XO

Friko said...

I'd join you in this utopian world any time, if you'll have me. Perhaps it would be even better to stay there, and never to have to return to reality.
