calling all wishers!

Everyone makes wishes. 
We wish upon stars, we wish on our birthday cakes and even sometimes just because we're having a bad day.
I need all of your help to make my final major project authentic and meaningful.
What I need for this to happen are your wishes.
I am working with origami cranes, and using a slip casting method. Each wish I receive will be written on a piece of paper, folded into a crane and turned into a porcelain version.
An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane.

I understand if you prefer to be anonymous, so please comment anonymously and leave as many wishes as you like.

And you never know, your wish just might come true!
Thank you so much for you contributions.

Ok, I'm obsessed now... I think your project is fucking amazing. I wish I could get to see it. I myself have a tree of wich hang origami cranes with wishes written in them, though it's a bit of a secret. People think its purely decorative. I hope when it's done you'll let us know trough here.I would love to buy a couple of those if you ever sell them too. I'll leave my wish in another comment in case you chose to delete this (I'd be totally ok with it) I just couldn't resist letting you know how in love I became with your project.
