An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury.

Who are we to say that it’s true or not…We can only hope!



One thought on “one thousand paper cranes

  1. Well I haven’t yet made 1000 but after Sheela taught me how to do them when we went to Melbourne together, I’ve got up to about 50 in a glass bowl in my flat…only another 950 to make 🙂

    We even had the guy sitting next to us on the plane getting interested!

    I really want to read Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes. And I want to go to the Rockafeller Centre in NYC where each year they have a whole Christmas tree of origami, mostly paper cranes!
