I'm not sure I'll have a candle to blow out today, but if I find a star to wish on, I'll wish to snorkel with the belugas, see fairy shrimp at night, and pet a whale in baja. I want to find sharks' teeth and another junonia seashell, and hear alligators bellow when they are mating in the spring. I want to see part of Denali. I want to go fly fishing with my brother, and travel with my sister. I wouldn't mind going back to Rome. I want my son and his wife and their children to always be happy and healthy. I want to run around the block without gasping for breath. I want to grin through my grandchildren's weddings, and I'd like to be here to cry happy tears when their children are born. I want my daughter to be safe and healthy, with shelter and food and medical care.
P.S. In case you wondered, I got myself the iPod touch, so that's one wish already taken care of! Now I just have to figure out how to use it!
