“The cranes were part of a project for Dr. Claire Colombo’s spring 2020 course, ‘Beauty Matters: Theological Aesthetics for Social Transformation.’ The assignment was: ‘Each week, for a length of time that seems reasonable or possible to you, please engage in your chosen creative process.’

“As the Covid-19 pandemic descended on our community, I happened to read an article on the tradition of folding a thousand cranes for good luck and/or healing. At the time It seemed to me that we could all use a bit of both as we began trying to navigate a new and frightening landscape.

“By the end of the semester, I had folded 1,000 cranes.
