“Sharing wishes with strangers makes a powerful emotional statement”. This week’s photo challenge is inspired by the Japanese tradition of sharing hopes and dreams by writing wishes on small wooden plaques called ema, which are a hung up together in Shinto shrines in the hope that the spirits will grant these wishes.

In response to the invitation “to show us a wish, and let your blog be the ema upon which you share it”, here is my wish.

I wish that in this world, the vulnerable may find sanctuary and compassion

The young dove and friend in the photographs represent the fragility of the vulnerable in need of protection.
