for several years now, i've had it in my mind's eye to do a wish tree. i think it was the guerilla art kit book by the inspiring keri smith that gave me the idea, and i've never wavered from my want to do it since. i also always knew i wanted my sweet friend faith to be my co-conspirator wish tree facilitator, but the time needed to be just right. the best way i can put words to that, is that i wanted to be very present for it, with all of my heart. and with all my wishing and dreaming as of late, the time was clearly now.
so we headed off to a park we thought suitable for wishing, with our hot drinks in hand (yep, hot drinks, and yep, that is a wool wrap faith is wearing) and found what we thought to be the perfect tree, a bit off the designated path. we then got to the task of preparing such a tree, which doesn't take much of course, because the magic is all up to those bold enough to give voice to their wishes.
and then spent lots of time watching them spin and flit in the breeze.
and wished some more
it was a perfect, perfect day.
