Blogspiration #6

Blogspiration is a Brand Spankin' New weekly meme hosted by both GrowingUp YA and Saz101. The meme was created to help spark inspiration among bloggers, readers and writers alike. An inspirational quote/picture/video is posted weekly, on the day of the author's choosing, so that it may inspire creativity, conversation, and just a little SOMETHING.

After the whole weekend (or I should say WEEK) of partying hard around Maribor, I am finally back :)

This week I want to share this awesome wall art called the Wailing Wall, which is taking place in the city of Maribor. This year there is this event, and it's taking place in my city, the European Capital of Culture Maribor 2012.

So "The Wailing Wall" - there are practically two walls - a red one and a black one around a fountain. The walls are made of ice, and it will take around two weeks for the ice to melt. The violet water will melt directly in the fountain. The point of the walls is: Take a paper, write on your wish and put it in the wall. When the ice will melt with all the wishes in the fountain, they will spread this water through all the city and it will be called the city of wishes (or something like that) and I think this is amazing <3 And it's so so beautiful. I've put my wish inside the wall today! There is also a political principle about the walls and diversity, but I prefer the wish principle about it :P
The Wailing Wall.
Me putting in my wish :)

Isn't it awesome? :)
This is the kind of art I really, really enjoy :)

First of all: WELCOME BACK, NEA!! <3

Second, this is a beautiful choice for blogspiration! I've never heard of the Wailing Wall before, but it sounds like a sort of magical and wishful place! It makes me want to fly over there and put in a wish of my own. I know what I'm going to do if I ever visit LOL! ;)

Thanks for sharing this really sweet post, Nea! I hope your wish comes true! :)

That is so cool! I love that the walls are made out of ice - they need to build something like that over here! :D Hope your wish comes true, Nea. ;)

How awesome! The Japanese have something similar, or... at least, I saw it in anime once *LOL* But, seriously, I love this! So cool!
