You write your wish on a small tag and tie it to the post along with others, over which the word HOPE presides. You feel a bit sheepish, but not like a sheep, because your wish is specific, not just stating a hope for "peace" or something in the abstract. And you don't scrawl, you take care to print it as neatly as possible given that you're crouched and you're using your knee as a surface. You don't call your wish a wish or a hope. You are not "trying", you are "doing". You're stating the reality you will create.
