I’d like to use this post to really get in to your head.
Pretend for a minute that I’m omnipotent…more so than usual, I mean. Pretend it’s to the degree that I have the absolute power to give you whatever you want. Anything….anyone you desire.
It can be whatever. There are no right or wrong answers here. All I ask is for your honesty.
Do you want money? Piles of it that go beyond the dreams of Avarice?
The ultimate woman?
What about bedding and/or marrying the hunk du jour? George Clooney? Jamie Deen?
Sorry, I know……I’m projecting with that one.
Wanna play for the Knicks?
Use a nine iron like Tiger?
Be a great actress?
Sing like Harry Connick?
Be the architect of the ultimate peace agreement between Israel and every other country in the Middle East?
Do you want to give to others in need? Wanna make Oprah and Warren Buffet look like philanthropic hacks?
Do you want material things? Spiritual things? Animal, mineral…vegetable?
Do you want to be thinner, heavier, taller, smaller, whiter, darker, more female, less male? Is it something that’s strange, odd, an anachronism, perhaps? Something out of a scene from The Jetsons?
Or from the The Flintstones, perhaps?
Would you if you could, bring back a loved one?
Would you like to get married? Get divorced, maybe?
Fall in love, fall out of love?
And with anyone special?
Be silly; be serious. Be august; be poignant.
You won’t be judged, I promise.
I’ve got some personal matters to deal with this week, so this post will be up for a few days. Take this time and think about it. Write down one thing, write down 17 different things—I don’t care, just tell me what you really, really, want in life.
As always, be careful what you wish for…
I’m feeling a kinda powerful lately.
