Wish I may



Star light star bright
The first star I see tonight,
Wish I may, wish I might
Have the wish I wish tonight.

It’s 09-09-09. It’s a day for wishing… I wish for a healthy niece or nephew. I wish for love to find me. I wish for continued growth in my wee business. I wish for a healthy body. I wish for a never-ending supply of Polaroid film. I wish for a wedding day filled with laughter. I wish for a book publishing deal. I wish for a  book-blog tour across Northern America, Europe and down under. I wish for continued unravelling and magic. I wish for connections and friendships. I wish for an easily attained driver’s license. I wish for a year living in California. I wish for a return to London. I wish for a ride in a hot-air balloon. I wish for a holiday by the sea. I wish for the perfect black shirt. I wish for a PA. I wish for hot summers. I wish for another rose cupcake from the Hummingbird Bakery on Portobello Road. I wish for a world filled with friendly people. I wish to go to Paris and have a perfume made for me. I wish for a dragon tattoo across my back for my 40th birthday. I wish for a Polaroid safari in Morocco. I wish for sciatica-free living.

I wish to find my man.

What do you wish for? Make a list today – I think there’s magic in the air.

    i wish for a job, i wish for happiness for my family – and definitely health, i too wish for my man and a camera safari across the world that ends in tuscany. and i wish for a small wee house off the coast of north carolina…surrounded by the ocean.

    Great wishes. I am so blessed to have much of what I have wished for…and so i wish the little wonders to continue in my life and for health for all my family, the courage and insight to go in new directions with my art…well, now that i am starting, the list might go on a bit long, so regardless, thank you for making me stop to wish a bit more. Also, when your wish to live in california comes true, we must have a cup of tea (no it will not be anything as simply divine as tea in the uk, not at all, nonetheless it would be lovely).
    Thank you

    ooooh, wishes! I hope and wish you all get what you’re wishing for. I wish to learn to surf, I wish to find my inner calm, I wish to start my own business and be happy in it, I wish to talk to my late Nan in my dreams once more (Derren Brown was also in the dream which may explain how I got to speak to her!), I wish to embrace life, to stop nattering and get on with more doing!!!!

    Loved your wish list. Made me want to do my own & I probably will. When I went to New Orleans I wanted to have perfume made especially for myself also. Instead I bought a musk oil I loved. Just can’t find the right scent anymore. But thanks for bringing that scent back to me.

  32. Mary S.

    I wish I had more time to cultivate my passions.

  33. becky aka theRAV

    Several days late & a dollar shorter, I have posted my wish list. Thanks for the inspiration.
