A few weeks ago I picked up the Sunday newspaper and on the front cover was a large photograph of white folded stars against a blue background. The stars looked like small people to me, and the image was uplifting. I opened the paper, and read.
Some articles were difficult to get through, reminding me of and describing in detail the endless and frightful difficulties that so many people endure at this time, on this small planet we all call home.
No matter what personal challenges I might have, these seem small compared to the unpleasant events I was reminded of that day.
I feel so grateful for the opportunity to share this quiet and safe art of origami with many people far and near. I think we all do the world a great service in practicing, and sharing, our gentle art.
So, as I have done in past years, in the following video I share with all of you, all of my friends, my visual journal… what happened at my own origami table in the year 2015.
As you will see, on some of my cleaning-out and cleaning up days the whole floor of my studio became an extension of my worktable. There was paper all over the place! But you will also see who gave me some help in my effort to organize.

I hope in the year that begins now you have opportunities to grow and fulfill your desires, and are inspired to add beauty and love to the world.
Keep folding, keep sharing, and ever cultivate a little island of peace during your days.
