1000 paper cranes?

1000 paper cranes?

I love making paper cranes, and each time I make one, I realise there’s a story behind it. So my new challenge (and I love a challenge) is to make 1000 paper cranes over the coming days, weeks, months, (years?) and write about each one…

Why a crane I hear you cry?

Well, firstly it’s the first origami I ever learnt to do, and is fairly easy to teach other people to do. It’s also a symbol of peace, and one I really love.

 

Why one thousand?

There is also a Japanese legend that anyone who folds a thousand cranes will be granted a wish. I’m not sure I believe that, but there’s also a really lovely song with that name by a band called Mono. And it seemed suitably optimistic and challenging…
So let the folding commence. If you’d like to keep up to date with my progress, become a fan on facebook or check out the blog.
