11:11 - One Minute Wish

One of our favorite local artists, Kelly Lynn Jones of Little Paper Planes, passed along the details of this special event taking place next Tuesday, November 11. Although folks in San Francisco will be gathering at Dolores Park at 11:11am and 11:11pm that day, this is something that anyone, anywhere, can participate in. So what is it exactly?

The organizers are hoping to observe a full minute of silence, during which everyone makes their own wishes. It is their hope that "the alignment of numbers and synchronicity of people coming together for a common mission can remind us that together we can realize the true affect that positive thinking can have."

What we think is especially cool: The whole thing will be documented through photographs and writing. A list of wishes will be kept at the event, and you can email yours if you can't make it there. According to Kelly, "there will be a site eventually where people can enter their wishes and then they will all be included in a book form and a possible exhibition in the future." In the meantime, if you want more details, send an email to 1111wishlist[at]gmail.com
