I wish for no thing added to or subtracted from.... be that a option? Everything seems the way it has to be :smile: .

However if you with heated metal tongs on feet force me to wish a thing I will....I wish that those tongs be not applied in such a manner. :smile:
Other than that or similiar thing........no wishes I make.

Ahhh....16 more days of incredible, incredibly said, things of great complexity....coming right up :smile:

And then...oh my.....a year of total simplicity..how will I survive.

And as LL be a good person of pure intent, and this thing is of significance enough to be mentioned as one wish he may have of all wishes....then I must comply.
As anything I say can be deemed most simple or most complex, for that year 2012...... I must not post at all here, to comply with this request.
A honest person has honestly asked this thing of me....I cannot deny as similiarily, I cannot intentionally harm...

So the wish be granted. Though I have no wishes..... I must comply with one so wished....
So, some may perhaps say....one should be careful with what one wishes....as unintended consequence may result...human being, as human are, not all consequences are ever know of, or about.

Demon sly so simply sllent found that to what I must comply, and not escape.
Forest walking, be I. Thought as jewels of light. Sensation laughing things. Movement as a ocean. Eyes as fluid.....speaking plainly now....for one year, not here, I be doing that, there. Know one does this thing. Silent I. Be I...still doing that.

Oh father Ron, you are so sweet.

But I am no longer attached to my wish after you have said all that.
