Tell us about the one luxury item you wish you could afford, in as much detail as you can. Paint a picture for us.
Photographers, artists, poets: show us COVET.
According to OED, covet means: yearn to possess (something, especially something belonging to another):
There is my problem’ ‘especially something belonging to another’. My mantra has always been, if you want what I have, then do what I have done. The corollary is,if I want what you have, then I need to do what you have done.
That all being said, if covetry was a realistic virtue, then I want the sailboat as pictured above. It has space, style & freedom. The space in which to live with structured stability. The style to say that I am functionally different. And the freedom to moor in any port.
Instead and until then, I will remain committed to my fifth wheel.
