Flying Crane

“O flock of heavenly cranes
cover us with your wings.”

Sending more love and wishes of recovery to Japan's tsunami stricken area by joining the bandwagon at 1000 Cranes for Japan. I first heard about the Legend of the Crane when my sister told me about it when she found a Japanese bowl with a crane figure stamped on it. She said it is for goodluck. A few days later the devastation in Japan occurred and now the web wide world is having a movement to fold a thousand cranes for Japan. The crane is said to be a symbol of happiness and eternal youth most likely because they have a life span of a thousand years. In fact, the Japanese believes that cranes represent longevity and good fortune. The tradition of folding a thousand cranes is an act of wishing for happiness, praying for recovery or protection, and spreading hope during a challenging time. I encourage you to fold cranes, donate, or pray for Japan. 

This is also my entry for Tickle Me Pink at Project 64 Out of the Box. Head on over there for more tickling or blushing :-).

Gorgeous shot! Love the pink crane and all the thoughts behind it too.

Beautiful shot. Love how you have it floating in the air. My crane-making abilities are not very good so I'll have to find another way to show support.

I love this shot, but I also love the thought behind it. I'm going to get my kids to make some cranes!
