Three wishes, what would you wish for?

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

For some super-abilities.

1. Immortality until the day of my choosing, including imperviousness to injury, aging or disease.
2. Invisibility at will. That way, I can have fun trying to amass my own fortune in, yes, unlawful, but fun ways. :P
3. Instant loneliness - at my choosing, I can single out people that would remain, but all other people would disappear from the Earth (machinery operated by humans would be stopped/grounded, etc., while essential utilities continued to operate) for up to 3 days or at my commanded ending. Note: Things would return to normal upon ending (crashed cars, airplanes, wrecked buildings, consumed items). The chosen people would have the #1 power above for the duration of the "time lapse".

Ok, so I'm a little weird, or have an active imagination.

I just imagine flying a plane to a Carribean island, crashing it because we couldn't be hurt at all (and why bother learning to land the thing?). Then maybe try floating in a volcano or driving a car over the Grand Canyon, or seeing how far I could "skip" a car off a smooth lake surface, seeing how high I could ride a nuclear mushroom cloud on a boogie board... ah. I'd never get bored.

I could wish to travel... I do and anything that is possibly do able that I would wish for I will do in my own time if I feel so inclined ^_^

Boy I sound arrogant - but for all you who 'wish to travel' or 'wish for _a bow/sword/dress/skill in any task_' take the bit between your teeth and go do it for yourself: Not everything is possible but you'll be surprised ^_^


Several years later and with a new name I still stand by this old statement of mine: I've got a PhD and an amazing Dachshund I adopted through skype and a Order of the Laurel within the SCA and I keep making things happen rather than just wishing them - I hope a lot of the people who were making wishes on this post reached out and grabbed those sizzling stars in their hands and made wonderful things happen for themselves!

My three wishes are:

That I can breath better and enjoy more ease in doing things I wish to do without feeling like I am going to pass out from lack of oxygen.

Pay off my debts so that I can live without owing others and enjoy my own money where I want to.

I wish I could retire so that I could do what I want with my time and sleep in late everyday! Not going to happen for a while but I can always dream!

Congratulations melanippos on your Laurel in the SCA!! I am in the SCA also and know just what you are talking about!

1. World peace and tolerance.
2. To become a published fantasy author.
3. To look into the Mirror of Erised and see myself exactly as I am. :) (preferably a lot slimmer! ;) )

I wish for greater wisdom
that carries me through tears,
I wish for dreams inspiring
to guide me through my years,
I wish for stronger courage
for risks I ought to take,
these are the yearnings in me
and wishes I would make.

Blessings,
Parm :)
The autumn I know and love in Calgary.

Enrinhue. :( would that we could make your dream come true. The only (very slight and rather sorry) consolation is that you were so fortunate to have had something so wonderful that is so very worth missing. That is something some never get to experience in a life time. I am certain she walks beside you and your son. :hugs:

prmiller! Oh my you are on a poetic roll!
So much better than worrying about a troll!

Hmm. Three things. I have been very fortunate in my adult life, so much better than my childhood, it is difficult to *want* because I know how difficult life can be (and is, for far too many). I am grateful.
So here goes:
*I wish for better leaders (saner politics all the way around)
*I wish it were safer, easier, and cheaper to travel
*I would wish for wisdom

I too miss the good old days when these boards were extremely busy and moved so fast. Alas we have all grown up and got jobs and other things such as family and friends and obligations that keep us busy elsewhere.

I will always love you all!

My wishes this year or this time are:
God's leading in these elections that whom ever gets elected will honestly be for the interests of our country and her citizens!

God's leading in my own life, as I have renewed my commitment to My Lord and Saviour as well as getting a new church family!

Also for renewed health! Being able to do things that we would love to do and being well enough to accomplish them. Blessings on all of you!!
