1000 cranes. Day 1

I watch a lot of YouTube and recently discovered Yuka’s Show and Tell  I really enjoy watching her videos. There’s something calming and charmingly endearing about the way she presents herself and her stories on her videos. Anyway I came across the origami paper crane tutorial and started to watch as I usually would ready to listen to her stories. Then she began to tell the story of why origami cranes are so important to Japan, I’ve attached this NHK World article  that talks about the history.

For me I felt a need to create 1000 cranes as a reminder to myself, sort of a meditation and to the respect of what a nation chose to do because they wanted peace. Our daily updates are going on the swarms and bee instagram here. Day 1 included a trial but every day we will create one each.
