This Is What I Need
I'm currently working on two campaigns that are giving me heartache as well as the usual creative angst. One with the purpose of getting more Swedish families to open their homes to child refugees. The other for a humanitarian organization trying to get more sponsors for their children in Tchad and Belarus. The research for both is, as you can imagine, not light reading. It's great work, don't get me wrong. It's important, it makes sense, it's challenging and rewarding.
But since you know me pretty well by now, and since we've decided that honesty is part of making the world a better place and all that, can I just please say that DEAR LORD, how I long for something shallow and superficial!
I long for a pretty dress. Or two. I long to be 60 pounds and holding a golden pretzel. I long for spring and dancing shoes and daffodils and curly hair and purple faux ostrich loveliness all over.
Having said that, can I now please take it all back, since I remember very well what happened the last time I made a wish.
Thanks for listening. And all of you wonderfulians who commented on my last post, Thank You. You make me happy every day.
