Statement My six year old brother, Mason, wrote to Santa the following note, "All I want for Christmas is my stuffed animal foxie to come alive." As a child, wishes were something that could really happen. Imagination, dreams and reality coexist and intermingle. Everything really was possible if one wished hard enough, long enough and in the right way. At a certain point the skepticism, reality and “adultness” seep in and take over. The ability to believe in the power of a wish is lost. Yet even though I “know” that wishes from a magic genie, birthday cake or a shooting star don’t work, I still wish because maybe one day my wish will come true, and I don’t want to miss any opportunities. For the next eight weeks I will be exploring the idea of the magic and lure of wish making.
