Today’s prompt from Jamie Ridler’s Wishcasting Wednesday is:
What Nourishment Do You Wish For?
Literally, right now the nourishment I could use is some ice cream. Perhaps a Blizzard from the Diary Queen down the road.
Figuratively, though, I wish for the following:
- Rest. I am always tired but it is so incredibly difficult to sleep. Last night I was up until almost 1:00 in this morning, and I could have easily stayed up until 3 or 4 before going to bed. I’ve said before that I think my natural schedule is much more nocturnal than not, but my work–and my paid work is very important to me–does not allow that. So I am tired as a natural state of being, but rest would be such an incredibly wonderful thing.
- Colorful food. Fresh fruits and veggies. All things that are good for me and awesome. This afternoon for lunch an Italian sandwich from Newk’s would have been my usual choice, but there was something in my soul that said, “Get the wonderful green, leafy awesomeness.” Our diet needs all kinds of beautiful food.
- Reading. I wanted to read at least one book a month, and I met that goal for January. It’s been a good week since I picked up my Nook. I have a whole slew of books lined up to read, but I haven’t made myself get going on them. I’m not sure why that is, but I need to fix it. The reading feeds the writing, and the writing is critical to me right now.
- Creativity. Writing. Photography. Something. Everything. For the last couple of years, I’ve been keenly aware of the need to create. I’m working on that. My writing here. The photography e-course. The photography workshop in New Orleans. But I feel like I need some direction.
Those are really the only things I’m wishing for right now. There were a couple of things that I wrote out and then erased because they don’t quite fit the “nourishment” theme. Four things…particularly when they are so big…are enough.
What kind of nourishment are you wishing for right now? What do you need?
