Wishcast Wednesday – Where do you wish to go slow?

Jamie Ridler’s Wishcast prompt this week is Where do you wish to go slow?

Before I respond I want to make mention of my father as today would have been his 82nd birthday.  My father, papa, passed suddenly on Valentine’s Day, 2003–he just sat down and passed away.  Although he was 74 at the time and not in great health it was still a blow to us kids and my mom.  We still miss him so much but know he’s with us in Spirit…Love you dad!!
Here’s a tattoo I got in commemoration of my father.  I had it tattooed on what would have been his 80th birthday.  It is Chinese lettering for “papa” as that’s what I called him often and then wings to signify his spirit.  And, I also put a picture of my papa taken a couple of years before he passed…
When I was looking through the pictures I also found this favorite picture of mine of my parents when they were dating and thought I’d share…
Soo…back to “reality”…
In response to Jamie’s prompt, “Where do you wish to go slow?”.  I wish to go slow to enable me to enjoy the love of people I am close with, so that I may keep them in my heart.
I wish to slowly savor life, the beauty of life, the beauty of nature as my father taught me to do–to treat nature with respect.
I wish to go slow with life.  As we age, the hours, days, weeks, months, years just seem to go by so very fast.  I wish for the long, slow days of my childhood when it seemed the days stretched on forever…sometimes I thought the anticipation of something great would just about kill me–I can just see myself with my arms wrapped around myself with a big smile on my face, excited, waiting…  I wish to feel that type of anticipation again.
Blessings.  As you all wish for yourself, so I truly wish for you!!
