crane number 1,000!

Since February 18, 2016, I have been giving away an origami peace crane each day folded out of a square of my own hand-painted paper. Most of the cranes have been placed around the campus of St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, Texas. My personal goal has been to do this for 1000 days with the intention of praying for world peace.
November 14, 2018, marks the 1000th day.
A special crane has been designed to be placed in the University Center at St. Mary’s University.

See #abzcraneproject for more photos and posts related to the project.

I see the origami peace crane also as a symbol of the Holy Spirit.

Went on a field trip last night to hear Austin Kleon speak at Texas Lutheran University.

Been using his Steal Like an Artist Journal to record my abz crane project.

Gave him number 943 and he signed my log that keeps track of where I have been placing my cranes… an addition to my abz autograph collection!

 

He is a fan of Sr. Corita Kent, so I also gave him a Brother Mel book!

A wish and prayer…
