I have been remiss in not posting about my little paper crane that came in the mail all the way from Alberta. Since it arrived it has been sitting here faithfully on my inspiration wall waiting for the day that I posted about it.
What I like most about it? Heather, inspired by a story like the one below, came up with a great idea to share and spread good cheer and happy thoughts by promoting peace.
Dying of Leukemia at the age of 12 as a result of radiation from the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, Sadako Sasaki folded over 1000 paper cranes in 1955 after hearing the Japanese legend that folding 1000 cranes would cause the gods would grant her a wish. Japanese school children, and other children all over the world, continue to fold paper cranes as a wish for peace and longevity.

Go and get your very own paper crane here. I thought about posting a photo of my paper crane, then I did the illustration above and have decided that if you would like to see the paper crane, you should see it live and in person because it’s pretty cool to get something like that. Via the mail.
