What I Want

Sounds like an easy question. UNTIL...

I was prompted to once again turn inside and truly ask my Self, and make my self listen without much interruption.

I don't know how many we'll end up with, but these are pretty much in good order of priority for Cygnus.

  • Three hours a day, every day of the year, uninterrupted, in the garden. I want enough space to feed myself, put some aside for later fodder, and have enough to barter with and a little more to give away. Give me enough space to work in those three hours-- no more, for that is all I need-- and I can do as I want.
  • Three hours a day to play. Rock climb. Bicycle. Drum. Make films. Bowhunt. Hang glide. Swim.Fly.The financial ability to do it all! HA!! (Ah well, you know... I thought long as I'm asking...)
  • Food. I figure I can feed my few scattered beasts both domesticated and semi-so in that allotted time... Anyone else see the beautiful spiral symmetry to that?
  • Three hours a day, six days a week, uninterrupted, to write. Blogger not included.
I figure that gives me another four hours for leisure-- probably mostly blogger, because, folks, I'm ALWAYS HERE!!! lol!

That kinda skims the surface of the ocean of wants this Swan has... important ones like food, fun, and Philosophy...

Mind if I add to the list from time to time?

Thanks, Holly.

Slainte, Folks.

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

I believe, my Lady Felinae, I will do just that...

Thank You!

Sarah said...

As Sir Cygnas wishes, I wish for him also!!!
Put it out there....you will be surprised what comes to you!!
Facinating list..I will give the idea of listing my wishes...hmmmmmmm.
For now I'm on vacation for nine days and that will do for now.
Blessings, Lady Sarah

Holly said...

Cygnus, you're still skirting the issue...what do you want in terms of emotional attachment and the one who you hope to have at your side???

Hmm?

Your Loving Crone

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

Sarah--
Vacation sounds nice...
Enjoy it!!!

Holly my Matron-- Is that what this is all about-- a WOMAN???

Hmm...

lol!

Sorry... not skirting... just ... beginning to get a mental picture, my mental alchemical amalgam...

Processing...

I have been in the garden all day (from sun-up to sun-down) because everything needs trimming, relocating or weeding. Sheesh this luxurious hobby can be time consuming (not to mention physically exhausting.

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

Physical therapy(preventative maintenance) AND preventative medicine-- no chemicals, higher vitamin content, diversity of diet...

Kinda like a triple gift, you add the suntan! lol!

Spiral Dancer said...

Hey great list..I like the food growing as well.. ( your not going to eat your bunnies are you?? she says hoping you say no..)I am thinking about the same here and also maybe even more expansive stuff depends on many factors though.

I don't need the adventurist stuff ,. I have enough trouble just negotiating my dreams..
Are you wanting to write, write as in write??
hmm maybe I should go and make a list also.. If I wont the lottery it would help. ;) :)

Shadow said...

damn, do i like your list!

Holly said...

I said nothing about a woman; it could be a dog or a cat or, or, or, or whatever, whomever you desire to be emotionally attached to/with...

I'd recommend it be a Human Being rather than a wraith, but again this is your path.

I'm only calling you out of the shadows...not walking the walk for ye!

Bright Blessings come to he who will risk standing in the Light!

Can you risk it, yet?

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

Spiral Dancer-- thanks! Lotto would be nice! And, yes-- I mean RIGHT-- write as in write. Like a book.

Shadow-- you to! glad you like the list!!

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

Ah! Me Lady Holly...

Freudian tripped up by implication-- yes, "by your side" could have been a good retriever...

So naturally I was thinkin' human being (sorry, wraiths...), and being hetero and all made the narrowing down much simpler...

So... in fairness...
Well, I'm still holding out for New Hampshire and Canada, so's I'll have all four quarters covered-- North, then East, then South, then West...

Holly said...

Always a good plan!

Pinkerbell said...

I kind of had the same thought as Holly, where are the people to share this vision with you? well there are us bloggers of course!

I would have to put several hours in there of day dreaming - totally unproductive but somehow it always ends up biting into anything I do.

Hope you get your final list sorted out, but be conscious that things never work out how you planned, especially if you've spent time making a nice list...

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

Pinkerbell-- the prettiest calves in all of Fairy-dom, I ken...

Yes, lists are never to be too detailed-- kinda like the white and yellow stripes on pavement-- great, for autos... but feet and bikes and even a horse will make the paint a mere suggestion...

As for the dreaming unproductively-- If I write the dreams, maybe I win the Lottery...

And there are the -- YOU-- bloggers indeed to share with.

Now, just what was it you were having? Me? A little bowl of grapes, currently (no pun intended...).

Want one? I'll share...
