I wish I wish I wish...
I wish I could be more like Miranda July.
I don't make a habit of wishing I was someone other than who I am. But I do make a habit of wishing to be a different me sometimes. Always aspiring to be better, more creative, wiser, smarter, calmer, more open to new things...it can be exhausting.
Part of me wants to take photographs and write screenplays and buy a motorcycle and live in another country. Another part of me wants to smack the first part for thinking that way, since we spent most of our twenties being a lot crazy and had enough excitement for two lifetimes. That part is fine right where I am, thankyouverymuch.
Someday I'll introduce the two and we'll have a nice chat over coffee and come up with a resolution that will make both of me happy.
