I want to live simply, to sit by the window when it rains, and to read books I’d never be tested on. I want to knit or craft ‘cuz I want to–not that I’ve got something to prove.
I want to listen to my body, fall asleep when the moon is high, and wake up slowly with no place to rush off to.
I want not to be governed by money, clocks, or any of the artificial restraints that humanity imposes on itself. I just want to be, boundless and infinite. Does it sound like a perfect retirement? Why wait?
“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.”-~Alice Walker
With a deep breath, smile and say, I will dream anyway. I will do it anyway. I will live anyway. I will not be stop in my track. I have the power to choose. Make it my daily goal.
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
(still doesn’t do MySpace, Twitter, StumbleUpon, DiggIt…but caved into Facebook, a smartphone, and a little bit of texting!)
