A Note to God

The Jewish tradition believes, that if you place a note between the stones of the Western Wall of the old city in Jerusalem, your wish will be granted by god. The cracks between the stones are filled with folded notes, and it is tough to find a clear spot. I saw this hand rising above the crowd, feeling the cracks to find an empty spot.
