What Success Looks Like

March 30, 2011 at 5:18 am Leave a comment

An apartment in the city and a cabin

in the south of France.

A loft shared with my Great Dane Marmalady.

A king size bed and

an espresso coffee-maker

that goes ding in the morning

when my toast is ready.

A view of the city and a balcony

where I can feel the wind

blowing across my cheek.

Travel to Laos, Brazil, Colombia,

maybe even Antartica. A job

that pays me to travel or

lets me work at home

when I feel like it.

An entertainment room with

a movie projector. Inviting

friends over to watch obscure

films and discuss hot topics.

A superior stereo system and

an extensive vinyl collection

that includes everything

from Billie Holiday to Bach.

Driving an electric car. Going

camping in the Rocky Mountains.

Friends to go with me.

A partner in crime, and

who knows, maybe even a child

(or two). Giving them a stable, loving,

supportive home.

A life free of fear. Stepping out

into the world with confidence and purpose.
