This is me making a wish on November 11th. 11.11.11. An auspicious day for wishing. Photographing my wish-making was part of a project called The Beckoning of Lovely. Unfortunately the inspiring film that was the culmination of this project was taken down by its creator.  However, many of us were inspired to document our wish-making. Check out the collage of images collected by Kristin.

I know that I haven’t been writing here much lately and to be honest, the wish you see me making above is a big part of the reason why. I have this wish. This desire. This plan. It’s kind of an all-consuming thing right now but it’s not something that I’m ready to broadcast on this blog. So as much as I don’t want to share it, it’s taking up so much space in my mind right now that there isn’t a lot left for other things.

May all our wishes come true.
