long time between posts over here, I am trying to be a little more diligent a few things this year... better add this blog to my list, huh. If you didn't now already I do blog quite regularly over here so you can keep fairly well up to date with whats going on at Coco's.
The above scrabble board is in my new window at the moment, I like just putting words on the board....and I really, really do wish you happy days and smiles....
I also have about 40 or 50 paper cranes in the window, I love paper cranes.....I love the story of Sadako and the thousand paper cranes, I read it to my children last year, it is a beautiful but sad story and I relayed it to a lovely customer this week who had never heard the story.... it gives me goose bumps..... I love the way stories can have such impact on our lives.... do you know the story? Japanese legend says that if you fold 1,000 paper cranes you will have 1 wish.... What would yours be?
Recently I found letters from 24 years ago that I received from my Japanese pen pal, beautiful papers, foldings and stamps, air mail..... I was explaining to my children how I used to write to a young Japanese girl, I wonder if she still has my letters? Her letters have a return address, I wonder if her family still live there?
Whilst I write this, in a bizarre twist a earthquake has rocked Japan..... My prayers go to those in turmoil, my heart goes out to those suffering or trying to contact loved ones, please be safe.... xxx
