Where do all the wishes go?
This piece, “The Wishing Well,” came out of reckoning with the thousands of years children have been wishing for peace, and the knowledge that it is still so far away. We learn its importance from a young age, yet still do not live in a just world. How do we get there? My mother taught me the significance of our Mohegan word for peace being “Aquene,” which means “to speak again.” This word reminds us that communication is key to peacemaking. by Madeline Sayet, Performing Arts, USA / Connecticut, Day 16 / July 20, 2020.
