07:24 am - Wednesday Wish-Place: Bermuda
I always want to go to Bermuda. I have never been.

It's not like it's that far away from me (except, well, obviously it's far away from everywhere, that small island group in the middle of the Atlantic), but either money or time or London conspire to keep me from traveling there. Maybe next year, I always tell myself. Maybe next year.

But, in the midst of work-pressures and nagging creative projects (yes, plural) and before I start my day, I'm going to spend a few minutes in Bermuda in my head.

Perhaps I'm sitting on a hotel veranda, looking out at pink sand, turquoise water, black rocks

I've cycled there, styling in my blue-and-white 30s garb, to meet a man in a blue blazer who'll buy me a glass of champagne.

Afterward, we'll head to a different beach. He helps me over the shifting sand as we make our way to a natural door in the rock wall between us and the waves. We'll stop just this side, protected, and gaze out. The scent of blue, sea sky depths, will be strong.

I always want to go to Bermuda.

Where have you always wanted to go? May you find your way there, even if it's only in wish-dreams.

Bermuda would be fun to visit. You'd get a good rate on a cruise, do some island hopping...see if you like it enough to visit for a week :)

I think I'd like to just go to Bermuda. If I ever see a weekend cheap flight, I'm out of here! ;)

Cheers, T! Happy end of Wednesday.

I've always wanted to go to Tibet.
But not an occupied Tibet.

You must go to Bermuda:)

((hugs))

Yes, that would be an issue with Tibet indeed.

Someday, Bermuda! I keep telling myself this!

Great Britain - I'd love to visit the museums in London, and see Stonehenge for reals, and Scotland because I have ancestors from there.

I need to get to Scotland too -- I have a hard time leaving the Home Counties and the West Country. :)

Cheers, and happy dreams to you!

Ireland! At least since I became a Ryan's Hope fan. :-)

That would be cool. Lots of ghosts in Ireland, I reckon, and fodder for stories. :)

Hugs!

I want to see the Northern Lights. I also want to see redwoods and other old forests.

A trip to Northern California would be cool. And then Scandinavia!!

:)

Cheers, hugs, and a good Thursday.

I always fear the colors might be courtesy of Photoshop, but yes, they're lovely. :)

Cheers, Stevie!

Mmm...the Orkneys would be nice and I've had a hankering for Znew Zealand for the longest time...

Happy Thursday?

I dreamed about New Zealand for a long time, but the travel-time put me off. Oooh, the Orkneys WOULD be cool!

Cheers, ALH, and hugs and happy Friday. :)
