It feels as if I have lost control of my life, as if the winds of life — or change — are in the air, and bits of me are floating off into the ether.
I wish I could concoct a powerful witches brew and — poof. Everything would be fine.
Or that I knew a wizard who could cast a joyous spell.
I wish I were as strong as everyone thinks I am.
I wish I had money enough and time to give everyone what they need and make things right.
I wish . . . oh, so many things. But mostly, I guess, I hope I will eventually rise
out of the horror or my life into a new day.
