One of the exhibits at the Columbus Museum of Art (see ART) is a Wish for Peace Tree. Based on Yoko Ono's interactive artwork Wish Trees (1996), children write their wish on a paper tag and then tie it to a tree, in this case, a beautiful little Japanese maple (Acer palmatum Thunb). I was particularly taken by the wish shown above. As a longtime fan of Akira Toriyama's wonderful manga series, Dragon Ball, I, too, was always hoping that Son Goku would find all seven of the mystical orbs and be able to summon the wish-granting dragon. [Spoiler Alert: He does].
