Artist's Description

A little bit at a time
Can bring a successful climb.
And with an extra hand
We’ll rise over the land.

So far 2011 is a better year than what 2010 has been. I’m still dealing with a number of matters; although ever since posting Wish there has been improvement, so I am very thankful for everyone who has left encouraging comments and prayed for me.

On another note, I have realized as well that I was not the only one facing difficulties in 2010; and some of my own friends who have been dealing their own troubles have been supportive of me; which I am extremely thankful for. They support me and pray for me, I support and pray for them, and then most often both sides benefit; the greater the support we give each other, the greater the change we see. Much like this piece I have made. It began with a piece of paper like this

I took a piece of velum paper (just one of my leftover scraps from my days as an architecture student) I cut out some squares that are attached to each other by the corners, and then I also made a big cut around those squares to create a flap. Each time those squares are folded into a crane, the string of paper get shorter, and the cut out flap begins to curl. With each folded crane the paper curls more. Folding one square only makes a small difference, but folding them all lifts up the paper. As such I dedicate this piece to all my friends who support me, and give me strength. I alone cannot make much difference, but the more I reach out to, and get positive response from, the more positive energy there is to ‘lift’ the odds.

A few have asked me to pray for them too when I asked them for prayers, and I was more than happy to do so. I know in some cases my prayers for them have taken some effect; and I hope it is like that for the rest, or that they will take effect.

For a better idea of scale
