I want to be a best-selling author. And I want to live on a beach where I’ll open my window, so that when I write, I can listen to the whisper of waves coming in and going out as seagulls cry above them. And when I taste the salty sea breeze that blows through my window, I’ll battle with the desire to write or to walk on the beach. But, writing will win, because after all, I’m a best-selling author.
What do YOU want to be?
- Jan Morrill 2011
I’m borrowing from Jan’s blog here to make my post, because her question made me think long after I’d made my comment on hers.
Her dream looks nice, but mine’s a little different. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to visit each other in their dream worlds when we all grow up? That way we could get a taste of it all.
Mine includes being a best-selling author, too. But I want to live in a studio somewhere far off the beaten path, preferably right here in the Ozarks. At night I want to hear the coyotes sing and my dog’s respond. I want to be inspired by bear tracks in the mud by the pond, to be given seeds of a story in the call of a crow echoing through the valley. And I want to be earning a comfortable living doing all the things I love to do.
Share your vision, if you please
