Wish Lists and Set Targets

It's now less than three weeks to my birthday.

Like every other progressive person, I'll take the time to reward myself on that day as well as do a fearless and searching moral inventory of my life so far. Thankfully, I am grateful to God for the opportunity to take stock of not less than three decades of an eventful life.

Right about now, the two items [for both work and play] in my immediate wish list are a Samsung Galaxy Y Duos smartphone and an ASUS Transformer Pad tablet. Check out the following gorgeous photos:










That said, there is a song I very frequently features on my playlist. Interestingly, it is a Christmas song, most of which are only played in the third quarter of every year.


Amy Grant's original version




Kelly Clarkson's rendition



The song's chorus is such a moving statement of what every person of goodwill should envision and accordingly do to help us all realize. It goes:

No more lives torn apart,
That wars would never start,
And time would heal all hearts.
And everyone would have a friend,
And right would always win,
And love would never end.
This is my grown-up Christmas list.

At a time when the world is heading towards anarchy, it is a good time to evaluate one's individual contribution towards a better life for everyone, as outlined in the above song.

Over and beyond wish lists, I'm looking at my upcoming birthday as a time to re-dedicate myself to the achievement of my set targets. It'll be a good enough time to mark ends and embrace new beginnings. It'll be a time to have another take.

I continue to thank you for your much appreciated company on this walkabout, even as we get ready for The Walkabout on a more elaborate scale.

Cheers :-)
