I am the one who usually tells everyone my crystal ball is cracked… just like yours. It is a knee-jerk defense against pessimism.
The question is not about my prognostication. It is about my wishes. This post was almost as difficult as the one about items for which I lust.
For me, I want simple. As boring as it sounds, what I really want of the future is consistency different from the consistency which inhabits my life at the moment.
I would love days which held no stabbings, no escapes, no lights and sirens. Days and nights where the tele rings for things like reminiscing, setting social engagements and reminders I need to return books to the library.
Today, education is something I deliver. Somewhere in the future, I would love to be immersed in an education program tailored to my intellectual needs. While I recognize this is unlikely, it would be fun. For weeks at a time, I crave intellectual stimulation which does not climax in my solving a life conundrum for pay. I would like to discover my own conundrums.
Sooner than later, I want to return to my roots and dance. Despite physical limitations, I am still graceful. Without practice, I will lose that grace. I really do not want to have a hip replacement because I stepped out of the shower incorrectly.
Doves to be exact. I have a sneaking suspicion I will be having these in the near future. I have been far too long without the
annoying soothing sound of mating calls.
This is not something with which I have had much success. I retired officially when I was 36. Based on the life plan I created when I was 19, I missed my goal of 35 by six weeks. While I have not finished the math and scouting to retire again, I am looking forward to being in merely an advisory or board position within the next ten years, after I have expanded Redmund into more arenas than merely books.
Hobbies=Books & Art
Yes, I want to read. I want to write. I want to be a prolific author in a number of genres. Yes, I know. I have eight titles in less than one year. I want to see my solo titles explode. I also would like to do it before I have to have someone transcribe what I speak. I would like to write them myself.
*Large raspberry* Fine. It is still not the same as feeling the pencil on the paper or the keys beneath my fingers.
I seriously need to let out some more art. I may not be the best at it, but I still enjoy creating it.
What do you want your future to hold? Anything you can grab in the next five years?
