weekly photo challenge – wish

“We are no longer happy so soon
as we wish to be happier.”
Walter Savage Landor

“I wish that we were kind to each other” (mine)

“I wish that it wasn’t so hard to travel by car” (Majken, 5 months)

“I wish I could finished with my PhD Thesis so soon as possible”

Yoko Ono’s “Wish Tree” at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk, North of Copenhagen during the summer of 2013.

Installations have involved from one to 21 trees, and varieties include lemon trees, eucalyptus, and crepe myrtles. To honour wish writers’ privacy, Ono claims she does not read the wishes and collects them all to be buried at the base of the Imagine Peace tower on Viðey Island in Kollafjörður Bay in Iceland. To date over 1 million wishes have been buried beneath the tower.

You can send  your wish on the tower’s website: Imagine Peace Tower

    • Was going to, but I found this little track instead. Her “wish tree” has been all over the world. I love the idea too. We should have a wish tree in every city and town.
