“Wishing is meant to be secret. It never comes true if you say it out loud, blowing the candles out on your birthday cake or catching the first star in the night sky. I build a vessel, a castle something sturdy and impassable to house desire, what we hope for most. Because perhaps wishing has always just been a way for us to send our desire out of our head and into the universe. Releasing them from ourselves and allowing them to be. To come true. To deliver.”
