again, nothing much will happen unless you make the effort to make them so. FPW’s
are a bit far-fetched, but not impossible. Unlikely attainment comes to mind. Non-the-less,
it IS what it IS. It’s okay to be self-indulgent with these FPWs. So, I got to work thinking
up 3 or 4 FPWs that I could work on. Health came to mind here; breathing, vision, sharpening
mind, and scouring my spotted soul. Again far-fetched. Here are some things I came up with to
help fulfill my FPWs.
1. Regarding my breathing, which is impaired by COPD and long-ago surgery to deal with lung
cancer will be a challenge. We also moved from 50’ above sea level to about 7800’ above sea
level. I think I’ll look up some Yoga classes.
2. Vision impairment is age related, and some cataracts moved in, but there was a tumor
complication that has since been dealt with. I’m going to consider Lasik. We’ll see how that
3. Sharpening my mind means staying busy and interacting with others. Also, Yoga will be
a big help.
4. Walking daily and meditating will be a big help for all the above.
Back porch sitting is a big part of our new life here in Taos. It’s magical, and messages abound with every new experience. I still here the trees talking.
I know that sounds crazy, but I am the only one I’ve ask (so far) that can hear this natural music that these trees make. It’s more soothing than unsettling. I think it’s part of the enchantment and charm that’s connected with this part of our country.
I will continue with my prayers, wishes, dreams, hopes and FLYING PIG WISHES. And, hopefully, through these, I will be able to continue doing at least one kindness a day for at least one other person every day. Long live FLYING PIG WISHES! Make it so.
