The flow of life is parallel to a journey off the land. It begins smooth, then the waves of adulthood brings high tides which we must overcome, However at the end of the ride, everything is smooth again. Ironically the lifeline in my palm depicts this flow; it begins smooth, then there is a big split and begin to ruffle, but towards the end it comes back together again.
This paper was about 7.5×7.5mm. Random dimension; I know. At home I have scrap pieces of Hilroy lined paper where the bottom line is 6mm tall; hence my typical 6×6mm folds, but the scrap paper I used for this had lines about 7.5mm tall.
I was so excited to put up some origami again but had a lot of trouble with the photography (I originally had a different idea on how to present this), and I eventually gave up on that and did this instead, placing the boat near the end of the lifeline in my hand ( because my old idea is in the grave :P). This may not give much idea for scale, so I also took this.
