If you have ever bought from Oz Fair Trade, you would have received an origami like the one in the picture. Did you wonder who made it? Well…I made it!
It’s a small gesture to wish you good luck and good health, and I hope it’s something that you will keep.
It is also a symbol for peace, hence the name Peace Crane.
Too many tragedies have happened lately, and my heart is filled with anger and sorrow. I am angry that some people can be so evil and cruel. I am distressed that so many innocent lives have been lost, and so many people have suffered.
Making origami is a form of meditation for me. It calms me, especially at times like this. I once made one thousand tiny paper cranes and hung them on my door. They were lovely. Smaller cranes taker longer though, but people are always amazed by them. There is a saying that one thousand cranes equals one wish granted. If only it were true.
So next time when you receive a crane, please know that it was handmade by me, and I sent it to you with best wishes for you and the world!
