What some of us want for Christmas.

The sculpture garden outside the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn modern art museum has this nifty “wish tree” installation created by Yoko Ono. It’s a simple idea, but brilliant: Invite visitors to tell their wishes to the tree, either by whispering to it or—even better for visual eavesdroppers like me—by writing down their words on whatever medium they have on hand and affixing it to one of the branches. I like to stop by every now and then, to see what the world wants these days.
