Someone to love
and somebody that you can trust
What do you want from life
To try and be happy
while you do the nasty things you must
All the things I want are intangibles, and worse yet – the ephemeral things that cynics tell me are nigh unobtainable.
I want trust and security and happiness and fulfillment and love and direction and adulation.
That’s not too much to ask, is it?
I’ve been crafting my life for a long time now. I’d say “carefully crafting” but that would be a total lie – I’m mostly stumbling around blindly, trying my best to grope my way onto the right paths to my dreams. I’ve been very lucky: despite the stumbling, the tumbles into the badlands, the willful following of the wrong paths… I’ve managed to achieve many of my goals and I’ve been lucky enough to meet a gabillionty amazing people along the way.
There’s a list of things that I really do want for my life – some material, some those aforementioned ephemerals. I want a small house with a garden and a studio space, a garden and chickens and goats and a couple of sheep… comfy furnishings, and enough food to eat always while sitting on the soft sofa.
I want my fibery biz to take off, and to teach even more classes, and to find other streams of income related to my obsessions that make me happy to pursue.
I want to wake up next to my love, and go to sleep in his arms. I want us to never tire of our amazing story, and always appreciate and treasure each other.
I want my friends and family to be happy and have everything they need.
I most definitely don’t need a personally autographed picture of Randy Mantooth, or Bob Dylan’s new unlisted phone number.
What do you want from life? When’s the last time you took stock of where you are, who you are, what you have – and what’s missing?
