crane craving

Some weeks ago I had the inexplicable desire to produce an abundance of paper cranes. I mentioned this urge to R who very kindly brought some colorful paper home a couple days later for that very purpose, but I've yet to start folding. I've been stunted by the question of what I could possibly do with a bunch of paper cranes once the job is done. Then I saw this:

I think this cascade of cranes is just the ticket, and intend to have one of my own very soon.

I saw a bunch of cranes like this one time that someone had made and written their name on the top one, and the names of their parents, grandparents, etc., on the ones below, as far back as they could go. It went all the way down and puddled on the floor.
