I tend to be too serious, so here’s my effort at “light”!
Some people have a “Bucket List”. I have an “If I Had a Magic Wand” list. Here are the sorts of things I would arrange in the world, the way I feel today, if I did have such an instrument:
Everyone on earth would have a home, and all their basic needs filled.
Of course I would save the environment.
I wouldn’t make everyone happy, because I believe, as Fritz Perls said, “You have to suffer to grow”, and I believe in personal growth (and maybe happiness or contentment later).
I would cure cancer and other awful diseases. They interfere with life and love and personal growth.
I would eliminate bugs that sting.
I would grow trees everywhere, and teach every generation to treasure them.
How’s that for a day’s work?
I am exhausted just reading your Magic Wand List. Very ambitious.
I often am overwhelmed with all the things I have to do to get ready for company of over nights guests. Where do I start? Making a list and working through it does help. I then see progress as I cross off the tasks. Doesn’t seem so hard then.
Your list is enormous but every tiny teeny bit you do toward it…..will be a great accomplishment. 🙂
Maybe they just figure that Yachimovich is not a real therat because she’s going to struggle to get more than 12 seats. In contrast, Derei could steal a large number of votes from Shas and Likud and has left-wing views of foreign policy (he was Shas’s representative in the talks with Peres that created the Dirty Trick).
