Before I die...

I'm not sure whether that's pure street art or something else. I'm not even sure who did this or how long it's been there. I found this on a hoarding in front of a dilapidated house in Union Street, Southwark. Just several unfinished "Before I die...." sentences and hundreds of replies from people from all over the world. Many of them illegible, but the remaining ones prove that we all share a bunch of common and very similar wishes.

Apart from the occasional cock- and crack-related wishes (someone also wanted to collect enough bonds before their death), most of the remaining ones can be put into two broad categories.

Be happy. And be free.

And what's your wish?

Before I die...
