I have a story for you:

I was sitting alone one evening on my street…just sitting there on my porch like the old days, doing nothing at all. I wanted nothing from the world, I wanted to watch it do its thing. People watching really rocks. I people watch everywhere… That is what I wanted to do that warm evening in my wicker chair.
I began watching the planes fly, leaving their trails like snails. I found it amazing that the world continued to move while I just sat doing nothing. I was watching a movie that was as free as the open road. Doves purred in the distance as other unknown birds flew past me.
Birds must have a wonderful life. I would love to perch on a sunny afternoon just relaxing and looking for a mate. We’d fall quickly in love. As soon as we’d know it, our chicks would be hatched and maturing their vocal cords. I would love to be a crane or a dove.
In Japan, cranes are a symbol of luck and happiness. It is said that if you fold 1000 paper cranes in less than a year, a wish you have will come true.
White doves are a symbol of peace. They mate for life and are extremely loyal to one another. They are peaceful and endearing.
Tonight I started folding the start of my 1000 paper cranes. It’s a daunting task and I have no idea if I will make it to the full 1000. I might just go to 100. I will later post pictures of my cranes. Here are some from weheartit.com that have inspired me to keep going.
