Today I want to introduce a brief photo  collection of “Ema” -  wooden wishing plaques that can be purchased at many Japanese shrines. People write their wishes or prayers and then hang it up on the shrine grounds.

I love reading people's wishes because within seconds it becomes obvious how no matter our physical appearance or the variety of languages we speak we long for the same things.

Let's start with probably the funnies one I found:
