what I've been upto???

Why do days have only 24 hours? Can’t we stretch some to 72 hours?
Well, will find a way to divide my time differently …

What I’ve been upto? well for a good 6 weeks did hundreds of origami cranes for 26 April 2011 in memory of the victims of Chernobyl, Fukushima and others.
Here’s the link for the pics of that fabulous afternoon
, full of laughter, sun, warmth, amazing butô dancers, meetings with people from all around the world …

The 1000grues action is still going on and the site is in both English and French (not necessarely in that order).
We collected almost 4000 origami cranes and that’s an achievement in itself.
Thank you to Annick who’s the master mind for organising this, her dedication, her patience, her smile and joy and of course to everyone that contributed in their own way.

    Looks like you have been very busy! Nice site my friend!

  • Oh I was folding, almost, religiously my cranes everywhere I went to. We were meeting at a couple of friends shop weekly.
    Been doing also quite a lot of pics but it’s soooo long to upload here on rb.
    Thanks so much Pamela.
