I am constantly wishing that I controlled the world. I'm not saying I want to be President of the United States or anything practical like that... I'm just saying that when I walk down the street and I see a woman wearing an over-sized t-shirt with manatees printed all over it, I wish I could do something about it.
It doesn't snow where I live but one thing I like about winter is that I can see the stars really well. I like to look up and see Orion's Belt winking down at me. Last week there was a meteor shower and I wrapped myself in a blanket and laid down on my deck to watch.
