A Wishing Tree Gift

A wishing tree, an old oak in San Luis Obispo, Ca., began as a Valentine's Day opportunity for passers by to write their hopes, wishes and dreams on colorful scraps of paper to hang on the tree with colorful ribbon.

Over 100 wishes flap into the air, written by children and adults.  Some of the wishes read, "RAIN," "Mom get better," and from a homeless person, "I wish I had my own home and a place to call mine."

The owners of the tree, who initiated the project told the local newspaper, "People that we never met, people who pass you and there's no eye contact--now those same people, they come by and can't resist, they reach up and read one wish and the another."
