A friend mentioned she wanted to fold origami cranes earlier. I asked her to fold 100 to get a wish. Turns out I was a little hazy on the figure. The Japanese has this saying: if you fold 1000 cranes, you get one wish.
I have a wish right now.
I want to fold 1000 cranes.
My friend says to give myself a time limit. One year sounds good.
I have decided to aim for 1000 origami cranes by June this year.
As I fold each crane, I will think of a friend, and send good thoughts their way.
May this too be a form of meditation.
