A Pasadena Wish Tree in Mississippi.
My dear friend Kristie is good about keeping me in the loop. She emailed me about Yoko Ono's wish tree's in Pasadena, California (HOME). I wish I could be there to put my wish up personally. Instead, I put some wishes on our Mississippi tree and have decided that it is an extension of the Pasadena wish tree project. So, let me know if you would like to tie a wish to our little tree. I love WISHES. I promise to wish that they will all come true every time I pass by it.
Yoko Ono’s influence for this piece is connected to her early childhood experiences in Japan: “As a child, I used to go to a temple and write out a wish on a piece of thin paper and tie it around the branch of a bush. Trees in temple courtyards were always filled with people’s wish knots, which looked like white flowers blossoming from afar,” she said.
The love bugs are out in force. They have a cute name but they aren't very cute. They are everywhere and my new little friends helped me put up some wishes this morning. I'm thinking that makes them even more special.
xoxop.s. If any of you go to Old Town and make wishes, tie one up for me.
I wish to move back to the West Coast.
Oh, I need another one too.
I also wish for Dan to find a good job on the West Coast.
