The time is always ripe

"We must use time creatively, in the knowledge that the time is always ripe to do right."

from Letter from a Birmingham Jail, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The picture is from Nagasaki Peace Park. All around the park you will find chains of origami cranes, numbering to 1000 in each chain. According to legend, if you make 1000 cranes your wish will come true. I like to think of the intention involved with each crease and fold, schoolchildren, grandparents all creating colorful paper manifestations of their hope for world peace.
