My pipe dream, the one I’ve had my ENTIRE life is to own a yacht and spend my winters in Key West and my summers on Block Island.  I’ve been asking the Universe for as long as I can remember and practicing The three tenets of Law of Attraction:
–Give Thanks 

I actually fell in love with Key West in 2006 while my brother, Jay was stationed there.  I was fortunate enough to visit twice in 2006.  Once in January and once in May.

From the moment I stepped off the plane and onto the tarmac of Key West I felt the EXACT same way I do when I visit Block Island.  You can imagine being the photographer that I am just how much I LOVED visiting Key West.


Since I no longer enjoy flying, having a yacht would negate that challenge of travelling.  Even when I loved to fly I had this dream of owning a yacht so I could travel and put in at area marinas up and down the eastern seaboard.  Have my camera, my laptop and I’d be happy.  Spend my days writing and taking pictures.  Who wouldn’t want that life?


These are my two favorite places I’ve EVER visited. The amazing thing is that I’m so close to Block Island that I get to go every year at least once, sometimes as many as three times.

Key West not so much.  A boat would change that.  I could travel anywhere.
What’s your pipe dream?




Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.


Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;

We then lose all our distress
We then lose all our fear of dying.  For there truly is no end.

    I love your pipe dreams, Chris! Mine would be to have my books go viral. I will keep praying, asking, and giving thanks.
