|Penrath (Austin, Texas US) ||Age: 32 |
The only thing I would want would be a toothbrush! (If food, fire, water and shelter were not an issue!) This(to me) would be an excellent time for reflection and getting closer with myself, with nature and with the God and Goddess. Revel in the beauty of the sunset, the beauty of the night sky being unhampered by the lights of surrounding cities, the smell of fresh morning breeze as the sun rose again.

2. A music source
3. A big flashlight

6. Some good hiking shoes to explore the Deserted Island Paradise
7. Writing materials

9. A convenient box of pagan ritual tools in order to have a Deserted Island Paradise Full Moon ritual, which would be pretty awesome, you have to admit
10. An incredibly handsome and spiritually aware Polynesian Man Friday, who would magically appear on the beach one day and helpfully instruct me in all the various rituals of the lovely and pleasure-loving peoples of the surrounding islands.
Why go home? :-)

|Asta (Kailua-Kona, Hawaii US) ||Age: 16 - Email |
I'd bring my boombox, so I could pick up radio and listen to music.
A journal big enough to write in, unruled so I could draw.
A set of crayons.
My personal library. (Maybe that doesn't count, so I'll count each book I would bring as one.)
-The Best of James Herriot
-Three wiccan books and my book of Shadows
My scrap bag with all my doll-making stuff.

|Ciarrai (Somewhere in Somerset County, New Jersey US) ||Age: 34 - Email |
(1) My cat b/c we're the only ones that can take care of each other (and I presume that cat food would fall under the food category of the immediate needs provided to me).
(2) A good bar of soap that I could use for my hair & body.
(3) A good moisturizer w/ sunscreen that I could use on my face and body.
(7) Writing Paper
(9) Portable CD Player
(10) A good home burned box set of CDs of my choice to include the Stones, the Doors, Zep, Floyd, Mozart, and a montage of the silliest "one hit wonders" of the 80s.

|Vestas (Newark, Ohio US) ||Age: 39 |
drawing pad and pencils

|Artemis Moonshadow (Kfar Saba, Israel) ||Age: 16 - Email |
Here we go:
1)Sun-screening lotion (I have very pale skin)
2)A solar operated radio/cd player (music is my sanity)
3)My CD collection (see above)
4)A bag of books I've read and haven't read but meant to (knda obvious why you must have books on a dessert island)
5)Notebooks and pens (for my poetry and writing)
7)A phone with a solar operated batery (I have to let my mother know I'm not dead while I'm on the island)
8)My cat (he's the guardian of my domain)
9)Deantal floss/mint chewinggum
10)Bug reppelent (I attract all sots of nasty things who "vant to such my bloood"
That's my list practical, on the island I'd probably meditate on the beach to the sunset, blissfuly skyclad and just relax, listening to music reading a good book and telling my friends on the otherside of the world that they should find their own island. The stars as my companions and my cat as my away from home family, I think I'd do quite well.

Wow, this is difficult! Thankfully it's only hypothetical.
Well here it goes:
1. Bug repellant! (who knows what kind of creepy critters may find me appetizing)
3. A collection of pagan chants
4. A knife to cut local herbs! Preferably my consecrated bolline, but any would do.
5. First Aid Kit (for those nasty possible snakebites and cuts, etc.)
6. The Illyad and the Odessey to pass the time and entertain myself.
7. A drum! (maybe I'd finally have the time and focus to get better)
8. A battery powered massager (no explaination needed there!)
9. A camera to photograph my, hopefully, beautiful and untouched surroundings
10.A picture of my live-in boyfriend to attach to the wall of my makeshift hut!
