I Want...

A blogger I read, Rose, over at Lessons Learned, had up a very simple post the other day. It wasn't a meme or a tag. Just a post. It listed a handful of things she wants. It got me thinking...

I want adventure.
I want to find adventure where others miss it.
I want to travel to mundane places and extraordinary ones.
I want the mundane places and the extraordinary ones to be the same places.
I want to wake up next to my dear Lithus more often than I don't.
I want all my family together in one place occasionally.
I want the kids in my life to be happy and healthy.
I want enough money to not worry where the next payment comes from.
I want to get back into my size 12s ~ with the occasional foray into a 10.
I want to see Appsrus again.
I want continued happiness.
I want to laugh.
I want to live life rather than to just mark time.
I want, at the end of it all, to see my father and grandfather.

It's a good list, I think. What do you want?

Those are Pobble Thoughts. That and a buck fifty will get you coffee.

A very good list, indeed.

Nice work. My favorite was "I want to find adventure where others miss it." Amen.

Hope you're having a good, long weekend Pobble & wearing your new glasses here & there too.

As it happens, I want a home. This will require some adventure and travel to some extraordinary places. When its all setteled, you can visit. We'll leave a ghuest room open for you.

It's a wonderful list. I want all those things for you. Me, I want lots of things, but mainly the ambition it takes to make the rest happen!

Nemeria ~ I'm a fan. :)

$$ ~ Not everyone gets that one; I'm not surprised you do. It's been a nice weekend and Lionel and I are heading to the park for Final Edits! :)

GOML! ~ I'll shake the chicken feet at that one for you ~ and take you up on the guest room one of these long as you, Sugar and Juno return the honor one day.

Cracker Lilo ~ For whatever it's worth, I have faith in you.

Humbled and honored to make the list. Some of these things you have. Still nice to have them on the list. Years ago Tahoe Mom gave me a copy of the Sayings of Lazarus Long (now available on the 'net) from which a favorite is "Everything in excess! To enjoy the flavor of life, take big bites. Moderation is for monks."

Rose said...

Great list Pobble. This kind of list just makes you think about what is important enough to work toward.

Gay Soldier's Husband said...

I want just one thing right now. The rest can wait.

But your list made me smile a big, beautiful smile. That's a good thing.

AppsRus ~ You deserve to be there. The honor is mine.

Rose ~ It is good to remember that life isn't about plasma tvs and new cars. Thanks for the post.

DGSH ~ I hear you. And I'm glad I made you smile. That's good enough for me these days.
