Antes de morir… / Before I die…
It would be an understatement to say that I’ve been stressed this week. I have two papers due on Friday, an intense 16-hour chunk of classes waiting for me this weekend, and a new-‘n-improved copy of my thesis due in just 10 days. Thankfully, the sun is out today! After all the snow and rain and wind that has been whipping through Madrid (as recently as this morning), today’s sun was a welcome change.
“Before I die I want to go to space”
I took advantage of the afternoon light to escape my notes and snap some pictures of a recent phenomenon in the ole barrio. Leave it to the happenin’ hipsters in Malasaña to come up with an idea this cool–a wall detailing dreams. The wall reads “Before I die,…” and has plenty of horizontal gaps ripe for the picking. This public art has really struck a chord, and though it is a recent work, all of the blanks have already been filled in.
Since the entire wall has been filled in, some clever people scribbled their wishes on heart-shaped post-its
“I want to TRIUMPH”
Other wishes read: “I want to see your eyes shine,” “I want to live on the beach,” and “I want to see the system change”
Communal dream catcher
What would you write on the wishing wall?
