Wishcasting Wednesday

It is Wishcasting Wednesday at Jamie Ridler Studios. This week Jamie ask “How do you wish to spend your time?” or put another way and in the words of Mary Oliver what do I wish to do with my “one wild and precious life?”A few days ago I made a post about my dream life, I wish to spend my time in ways that make those dreams manifest.

  • I wish  to be intimately acquainted with nature. I wish to engage in an ongoing treasure hunt for signs of the shifting seasons – to seek the first blossoms of spring as children seek Easter eggs, to marvel at fireflies on summer evenings, and to savor the plesures of each season in its turn. I want to gaze in wonder at the stars and chart the lunar cycles.
  • I wish to continually learn and to teach in ways both formal and informal.
  • I wish to support good causes, independent artists, and small businesses with my minutes as well as my dollars.
  • I wish to interact with others in ways that lead them to make connections and to push beyond their expectations.
  • I wish to sleep deeply and to laugh often.
  • I wish to create, to write, and to wander with my camera.
  • Mostly, I wish to live each moment as fully as possible and in accordance with my deepest values. Then when that moment has passed, I wish to move on to be fully in the new moment.
