Dear Santa, I Need...
a winter coat
a good cookie sheet
a shelf sound system
a cruise to Alaska
a drill and drill-bits specifically for plaster walls
a sincere romantic hug
a friend to help lay the pad and area rug in the living room
a trip to IKEA for more storage options
a deep, romantic kiss
a Christmas connection with old friends
a lobster dinner - or, maybe two
a complete end to the ugliness of my previous life
a way back to volunteering and helping others
a visit with my best friend who is fighting cancer right now
a listening/counseling opportunity to help GLBT youth at risk
a few friends to understand that while I'm not on their chosen road, I am not lost
a trip to Holland one last time
a cell phone with querty keyboard to fast-text on work related issues
a trip to New Orleans to visit my sister and a few old friends
a flannel sheet set for these cold winter nights
No iPads, iPods, or the latest electronic gizmos.
Is that too much to ask for these days?
And so it goes.
