Desire



With a smile on her face, she ticked off the last item on her bucket list, which had 101 items to accomplish before she died.

Taking a five-year sabbatical from her hectic job as a top marketing professional, she had roamed the world, met with people at various corners of the world, and even published a best-seller novel based on her travels.

In the deserted lanes of Palestine, she had met Arnold, the famous American photographer who courted trouble and desired her.

She didn’t want chains, she wanted to be a free bird and couldn’t allow even love to clip her wings- they parted as friends.

Deciding what to do next, she fired her laptop with glee and opened the Google search page to prepare a new list; it was time to name new desires, discover new goals.

  5. How I wish that I could be like that girl and become a free bird. But I guess having a lovely family has it's own moments too :)

  7. Time to name new desires, discover new goals--I like the sounds of that! Maybe it's time to take a page from her book.
