I Want To Live On An Island

My father once told me “Whatever it is that you want from the universe, write it down and simply ask for it.” That has always stuck with me. I tried to mentally demand something from the universe today, but it failed. Miserably. So now, I’m asking for something different. And I’m going to be concise.

Dear Universe,

I want to live on an island. I want to be away from the big city. I want to be amongst lush, green palms and swaying ocean breezes. I want to be able to hear the surf from my porch. I want a wrap-around porch made of dark wood with steps that lead down to a loamy lawn. I want to have large, red ginger blossoms in my garden with leaves like spears. I want a banana tree, an avocado tree, and a breadfruit tree in my backyard. I want to be able to sit in my island home and write for hours while the wind dances through my muslin drapes. I want to end my day of writing with a walk in the sun on the beach and get sand stuck in between my toes and the ocean salt to my skin. I want to then enjoy a beer at the local bar and have an evening full of conversation with my neighbours while we eat fresh seafood. I want to be able to repeat this day, after day, after day.

I want to be away from here. I want to live on an island.

Sincerely,

Ashley

P.S. This may or may not have been inspired by 1. My desire to write for a living; 2. My obsession with islands; 3. The fact that I’m currently watching The Descendants.
