For some time, my wish has been to be a bird, or the winner of the Giro d’Italia. Why have small dreams when you can live in a fantasy world and dream of becoming anything at all! In the words of a friend’s toddler:
“1, 2, a 123!
I’m a girl!
And I can do anything!
I won’t letcha down! Uh!”
That’s right, in my head I believe I can do anything. In reality, not so true.
Today though, I had a realization as a new wish occurred to me: I want to be a time-lapse camera. I realized that IS something I can do. What I have in mind is sitting for a day and watching the landscape. Noticing the shadows as they come and go and the clouds as they build and dissipate. I’d sit very still, all by myself, stare in one direction and let the day unfold: somewhere in the desert. Something like this.
What do you dream of; what would you become?
