Just before you think I'm going to go totally philosophical and worthy and that you might need a sick bag...
ANYWAY...thinking about love-padlocks and bridges reminded me of peace cranes. Yes I know, my mind works in mysterious ways.

It seems very presumptuous of me to relate anything in my little existence to such profound happenings, but about ten years ago my life had fallen to pieces entirely through my own fault and I had made myself ill with it all. Nearing the end of a long road to recovery, I wanted to perform some sort of symbolic act to somehow mark an end to it all.
I made ten origami cranes (not a thousand...even ten took me forever!) took them up to London and dropped them, one by one, off the exact middle of Tower Bridge and watched them float away down the Thames until they'd disappeared from view.
I honestly think it helped me to find a little peace within me.
