If I had a magic wand



Round the corner from my office I found a magic wand hovering between water and sky. Of course I seized it. If you found a magic wand, what would you do with it?

Au coin de la rue en quittant mon bureau j'ai trouvé une baguette magique suspendue entre eau et ciel. Bien sûr, je l'ai saisie. Si vous trouviez une baguette magique, qu'en feriez-vous ?

Ce serait me donner trop de pouvoir que de me donner une baguette magique.
Regardez tous ceux qui sont au pouvoir! Ils ne le maîtrisent pas. C'est le pouvoir qui les gouverne.

If I had a magic wand, I would give to some people, the piece of stamped paper they are desperately expecting...

Si j'avais une baguette magique, j'obtiendrais pour certains, les papiers officiels qu'ils attendent avec anxieté

I'd wave away all hunger, war, and disease....and laziness. I hate it when I'm lazy!

Je ne sais ce que je ferais si je trouvais une baguette magique, je n'y ai pas pensé car je n'en ai pas
La tienne me plait beaucoup
elle est d'autant plus magique et irréelle qu'elle est monochrome

Hmm! That's a toughie!! Should I be selfless and wish for world peace, end hunger and poverty and disease, or should I be selfish and wish I have enough money in the bank so I never have to work again, and pursue a hobby like photography full time?

Une bien belle photo, superbe reflet et belle gestion de la lumiere.
Une baguette magique, tout depend, elle marche qu'une fois , ou tout le temps ? moi avec un baguette magique, je ferais de la teleportation, j'aime voyager mais je deteste l'avion. le soir tu rentres chez toi, tient un concert de Lou Reed à NYC et Hop...

Avec ma baguette magique, je rendrais ceux que j'aime in-des-truc-ti-bles, comme dans le film. Et toi, qu'en as-tu fait?

If I had a magic wand I would scratch my back with it:)

Je transformerai tous les visages en sourires

Cool picture but a hard question. My reaction is like Mings, Selfless or Selfish? I guess it depends on how many times I could use the wand.

Si j'avais une baguette magique, je ferais disparaître Georges Bush.

blueboat said...

Easy. World peace, end to poverty and calorie-free ice cream.

Franco said...

If I had a magic wand...for sure I also would use it to make George Bush disappear (luggi...shall we share it for the pourpose? it would be a great moment!)...and then, I would give it to somebody who really needs it (well, not brand new, just a good second hand magic wand: but still quite powerful! Ask George...).

i just came across your blog ,its really nice,
i wonder if i can have it both ways (selfish and selfless)like using the magic wand to end hunger and poverty so i can win nobel peace prize and be rich and famous:)

Nathalie said...

Thanks all for your great suggestions and comments.
HPY you're right, it's power that governs men and not the other way around
BV, kind thoughts
Pod, your sense of humour just kills me!
To all of you who would use it to get rid of the man Aussies call George Dubbya, wrong choice. I'm sure another idiot would take his place immediately

What I did with it, Alice? I did what my parents to do when I find something valuable in the street: turn it to the Lost and Found Department. I'm surprised that none of you good and honest people thought of it!

Magique réflection :) Je ne sais pas ce que je pourrais faire avec autant de pouvoir, je pense un peu comme HPY, c'est le pouvoir qui maintes fois corromp les hommes. Un monde parfait? Je ne sais pas si c'est possible, mais rien n'empeche de rever :)

Bill said...

I am not sure I could be trusted with a magic wand. I would be tempted to deal with too many issues on a short term basis as opposed to a long term basis. For instance, how much money is enough? It is always a bit more than you have..... :)

chamamy said...

Je mettrais des étincelles de joie dans tous les yeux...
Mais c'est toi la magicienne qui interprète tous les signes divinatoires :)

My magic wand would produce peace and remove the insatiable appetite to seize land and property, war would be no more!
