Today was unplanned and I am thankful for the spontaneous adventure that unfolded for the second anniversary of this Eleven/Eleven project. My dear friend’s, An & Dickie surprised me with 11 balloons and the 11 cranes I had given to them one year ago (No. 355 – 365).

I took the cranes and balloons on a bike ride from my house to their house, releasing them on the ride. After sending off the birds and balloons, I found a home for some “lost cranes” from the past 2 years while revisiting the sites of past 11/11 anniversaries.

Today I was reminded how much this project has grown and transformed in ways that are beyond my own control. And even though I haven’t made as many cranes as I once did, this project will continue to serve it’s purpose as a way to share the memory of my mother.
