Wishing Tree

My friend Carla has often great ways to share her love.  She set up a “wishing Tree” in front of her frame shop Minckler’s Frame Shop on Carrillo Street, and the wish lines have been filling up.  She said, “When people have a wish, that means they are hopeful.  I want people to be hopeful.”  I was like “damn, woman.  I love that”.  I know how important it is to have hope and purpose in life.  I also know how terrible and horrifying it is to be consumed by hopelessness.  (And I learned today what a great thing “honesty” is all about.  It’s an exciting thing indeed! It was a super cool day, Lynn.)  And to tap that, I left my wish on the wishing tree, too :-)

This is her “Ornament Recycle Tree” next to the Wishing Tree.  If you like what you see on this tree, you can take one and leave one of yours for others to enjoy.  Yep, everybody is happy.
