Day 21: Crystal Ball

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?

  1. I too enjoy creating art, of course my flair is nowhere near the excellence of those that I visit around our blogosphere but nevertheless I still enjoy my artistic adventures 🙂

    I know that you have your fears but if anyone can do the many things that you have stored in your thoughts then it is you Red as you have a never-ending source of optimism, something that many others should try tapping into, as positive thinking is certainly the way forwards and you have an abundance of drive and commitment in everything that you do 🙂

    Have a creatively exciting Monday Red 🙂

    • I have been enjoying creating these weeks I have been gone. I have some brilliant pieces which I will put up here, but I have some equally qualified to be kitty litter pan liner. *grins*

      • 🙂 lol Now that sounds like some of my offerings of late, I will need to do better and stop reblogging my earlier posts, now how boring is that 🙁 lol

        • You keep flashing. Nothing says you cannot go back and do new ones for the words 😉

    I can understand the feeling like you’re going to explode if you don’t get something out – I’ve felt that myself. I also hope for peace & serenity for the rest of the world.
