...and folded and folded. Who knew I could have one day made a living at folding paper like Sipho Mabona !?? When I moved to Japan I fell in love & couldn't have enough origami paper. If my parents gave me money I would spend it on origami paper. There was always a silver page or gold page, or both at the bottom of the stack and I always had a hard time folding those. I would save them for last because they were pretty. I would get so upset if I messed up on those pieces. haha Looking back it was sort of a comfort having that paper to play with being in such a new environment & culture. I love the Japanese people, Japanese art, food. My mom jokes (but it's true) that she was still finding paper of mine long after I moved out. (I won't say how long. haha)
A nice package of origami paper can still stop me in my tracks.
After all these years I can still make these in my sleep! I also make one upside down with a little flare...
My son's wedding is July 3rd. The rehearsal party is at my house. Maybe I should start now and cover the backyard in white cranes! hum.... I think I'd need some volunteer paper folders my yard is pretty big! Did you know according to Japanese legend that 1000 folded cranes makes a wish come true? Who's in? Who's folding with me?
Today I plan to work listing some new art & paint some more.
So folding my hands in prayer is the only folding I'm going to get done today!
Create a great day!
