One lucky paper crane

It’s just a piece of paper you might think but look closely. It’s much much more. It is folded many times, turned upside down and twisted a little and it becomes a crane. Not just an ordinary crane but a lucky one. A crane that is given is a lucky one. That’s what I think. When you string them together into a thousand it becomes a wish or a memorial or a prayer for peace. I just have a one yellow one to share today. I can’t remember how long I’ve had it but I can’t bear to throw it away. It’s lucky after all.
Make a thousand by yourself and make a wish. If anything it will teach you patience and perseverance!


Good luck may come unexpectedly

The Japanese proverb “Inu mo arukeba bou ni ataru.” literally means “Even a dog will bump into a pole if it walks,” which sounds terrible but what it is trying to say is that good luck may come unexpectedly! Action creates luck.
I have bumped into a pole literally and figuratively!
Make your own luck, stop dreaming and take a walk. You might just bump into a pole!

Who could be so lucky?

“Who could be so lucky? Who comes to a lake for water and sees the reflection of moon.”

Feeling Lucky

When the fish are biting it is a wonderful feeling. When they don’t, it is a long sit looking at water, feeding fish. Sometimes it is better to give up and just watch the sunrise. I’m tired of eating tinned tuna!
