  1. Hopes of luck , healing and wishes come true were carried on the wings of origami cranes that were handed out to all who donated to the collection for Japanese disaster relief at a fundraiser dinner I attended last week.  What a fitting gift of gratitude – the delicate, perfectly formed origami crane – rich with symbolism.  Here are photos of the one I received.
