A Journal to impart knowledge and facts
|Prompt: Have you ever seen a falling star? Did you make a wish? Write about this in your Blog entry today.
I always called them shooting stars. Yes, I have seen a few in my life. Not in the last couple years because I don't actually spend much time viewing the night skies.
I don't remember ever making a wish. Or, I don't remember anyone saying you could make a wish. I made wishes at thanksgiving with the turkey wishbone. And there is the blowing out the candles on the birthday cake wish. I've participated in that idea.
The longer I live the more I see the benefit of reality. Knowledge is important to make good decisions. My life became a whole lot more relevant when the "age of information started." I can see how I actively was seeking to make life better when I pushed for our family to get computers, internet, kindles, phones, and corn burning heaters. Every modern thing that comes on the market is not what I want. I like the objects that make life easier and give us knowledge. If I ever made wishes, when I was a child, I can't say they came true. I have experienced the fulfilment of honest talents.
Mostly, other people were involved in helping get things I wanted or needed to fulfil my life. My life ambitions are not necessarily accepted by the people who I live with or worked with at any point.
