1000 Paper Cranes.

I learned the art of making origami birds when I was in Grade 5. We had a highschool exchange student from Osaka, Japan visiting over the school term and we read Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes to broaden our cultural horizons. To round-out the education, we also learned how to fold paper cranes (I think I was actually wearing a kimono the first time I did it too).

It’s a craft that’s served me well over the years, giving my idle fingers something to do with random bits of paper that I happen across (like tea bag tags). It’s the small things in life.
