Origami and grief work


I have to say, I’ve been doing more of the former, so that I don’t have to do the latter. Seems to be a question of ‘Three cranes a day keeps the demons away.’

The fact is, when I’m thinking about the process of making a crane (as I am between sentences writing this) I cannot  think about the surrounding crap that prevents me from functioning in the day-to-day sense. It’s good to reduce the frustration I feel in a positive way, with something other than blind rage to show at the end of it. I strongly recommend it as a way to get rid of any ‘Grrr’ that you may feel over your own loss. Until next time….

    This is a really good idea/suggestion. I have a stack of origami paper and my loss is still fairly raw and on my mind often. I know what I will be doing tomorrow.

    Happy ICLW 🙂
