still-sound 185. Bowls and paper
I went to Little Tokyo on my day off yesterday. I bought two porcelain bowls. They were surprisingly inexpensive. I like the net pattern and the little scene depicted in cobalt at the bottom. I will use them for rice. And possibly ice cream.
I also bought origami paper in a Japanese bookstore. I plan to make many many paper cranes and hang them in the window of the perfumer shop where I work. I've never attempted origami before. Lately I've been watching youtube videos of origami demonstrations. I seek video material that will lull me into a sleep. I thought that I would like basketmaking tutorials but they, in fact, fail to relax me. Too much talking. I found that most origami instructionals are silent but for the sound of folding paper. I will watch the one that teaches the crane design and try to stay focused.
