How I Wish !

As we drove home from DFW airport, I stared into the night and the vastness of the city that is multiplied by its lack of trees. In the blackness of the sky , as I stared on at nothing, listening to Sac chatter nineteenth to a dozen, my brain registered a shooting star. "Oh my God a shooting star, look loook" i grabbed sac who was driving. "Make a wish, you are supposed to make a wish.. quick quick, .." and my brain froze. What should I wish for? what do i want? no, what do i want most, Oh no, God its fading away. Just as the star faded away, in the final moments of its existence, i quickly made a wish for whatever popped into my head. No, I wont tell you what it is, because then it wont come true.

Later at leisure, I thought about the wish I made. "Sac, i wish I had wished for something else. Something better". As the words came out of my mouth, I smiled at my own childish greed. Hell, I was getting a wish for free, may as well have wished for the heaven and the earth. It is never enough. is it ? I am not rich enough, not thin enough, not young enough, not old enough, not clever enough.. its never ending.

Thinking more about the wish I finally made, I actually surprised myself. Of all the things that I could have thought of, this was the first and foremost. That told me a little about myself and what I really care about the most. About what actually makes me happy.

Life could always be better, but for today, to quote Kau, "Thank God, I have enough".
