i wonder why it was always three?
And i wonder why, no one ever wished for more wishes?
"What are they all for..... So i can have everything i've ever wished for and more..."
Of course the illusive wishes always lead to misery, with each word being twisted to make the wish an ill never imagined..... Be careful what you wish for, and all that.
When my daughters were younger, we'd often play Conquian, i had the uncanny knack of wishing for a card and the card would show up on the turn, the girls soon banned me from wishing
We'd play a 110 card deck with six 'floating' jacks that could be any card - i once dealt myself all six jacks, with a simple wish, and put them down on the deck as a set of jacks - i wasn't allowed to do that apparently
Of course the downside of the wish is that all too often ones focus falls onto the material, self gain and vanity...... The opposite of that, however is to wish for things to materialise outside of the self, for the betterance and good of all..... But is it proper to project our will, our wish, upon someone else, how might they learn if we correct the ills which drive them?
The moral seeds of the wish seems to fall on dangerous ground no matter where they sewn, we fall into selfishness or project our will upon others.
No wonder the fairy tales have so many negative connotations through the granting of wishes.
Ultimately then the message befalls to us that we should strive to the things we want, for ourselves and others, be the change that we wish to see in the world, rather than seek outside help from (apparent) benevolent forces.
But still, what would you wish for?
Go on, give it a rub
