Welcome to Origami Spirit (formerly The Braid)

Since April 2007 I have been writing for ‘The Braid’ a blog about my experience with origami. Maintaining this blog has been rewarding in many ways including the formation of friendships with people around the world for whom paper folding is also a passion.At times it has been necessary to leave origami on the back burner to take care of other pressing commitments. But origami always refuses to leave me alone for long. Over many years origami has become a constant presence in my life and a great source of creative inspiration and joy.

The Braid‘ –and her Spanish sister ‘La Trenza‘, have been made possible with a big thank you to WordPress.com, a truly great publishing platform. But as great an experience as WordPress.com has been, I’ve decided it’s time to make the leap and move my origami blogs to their own domain.

The new site is named Origami Spirit. At this new address I will continue writing about origami –in English and Spanish, sharing my enthusiasm for paper folding in the same spirit as I have on ‘The Braid’.

This move has been made possible by and with many sincere thanks to John Sutton, my life soul mate, my web advisor, and web architect. With this project John has given me much encouragement, excellent advice and technical know-how in the building of this new web presence.

And so we all move on. The river of my life continues to flow through a land where it loves to go, the mountains and valleys of ORIGAMI land.
