Writer's Block: I Wish I May

When you see a shooting star, find a four leaf clover, get the bigger half of a wish bone, or catch a fallen eyelash... What do you wish for?

I've always heard if you tell your wish, it won't come true.

But since I'm not telling you a specific wish-moment -- not what I wished for when I got the bigger half of the wish bone last time, not what I wished for the other night when the clock hit 11:11PM -- I guess it wouldn't hurt to give you the general gist of my wishingness.

I wish for peace.

Not world peace. Well, not often. I'm much more selfish than you think. I wish for familial peace; I wish for internal peace. I wish for happily-ever-afters. I wish that my mother won't have headaches anymore in both the very literal physical sense but also in an economic sense. I wish that she wouldn't have to worry so much about money when there's two of us in the household that are sick. I wish none of us did. I wish my sister luck in anything she chooses to do with her life. I wish that one day I'll wake up and I won't hurt anymore. If I know a friend is having a hard time with something, I'll send a wish in their direction. I wish he knew what a good guy he is and that he'll find his way. I wish she gets the job she wants. I wish his family learns to appreciate him more. I wish she knows just what a good friend she is. See, even those wishes become turned inward after a while: I wish they remembered I exist. I wish he'd talk to me. I wish I knew what to say to her. I wish we could be friends again.

More often than not, it's a sense of peace that I'm yearning for with any wish I make. For myself or for anyone else, I keep hoping they find balance and serenity and stuff like that.

(Oh, and for a great big vacation. I wish for those, too.)
