A while back, I bought a pre-packed origami set from a book store. It has a book of projects and a whole mess of paper, something over 200 sheets. The book is kind of crap, frankly. It's painfully simple folds, but it reminded me how to make the cranes, and that really all I needed. I'll be making at least one for every day that he is gone. One little crane to pass by each day. I plan to put them on thread, hang them somewhere. I don't know just where or how yet, but it's the plan.
I just want something to save, something tangible. My little way of counting. Each crane brings me one day closer to having him home.
