Paperfolding. Origami.

This is a lovely tutorial made by a 10 year old. It is narrated in Japanese, requires patience, five minutes and twenty five seconds of your time and a little bit of imagination because she is only as clear as a 10 year old can be. At the end you will learn to make a PAPER wedding dress that looks really fantastic.

Se quienes pero no donde o cuando

1. Una mamá feliz. Margarita Ricardo con Margarita y Gloria Vásquez. Las dos primeras hijas. La foto podría ser de 1947.

2. Centro de Medellín Margarita y Elida Ricardo. Hermanas. Debe ser en los 50s.

3. Son ya 3, por lo que pudo haber sido tomada en 1952 o incluso después...Margarita Ricardo, Gloria, Beatriz y Margarita Vásquez R.

4. Una imagen que simplemente le sale a todo esto.

Las tijeras de ZIGZAG. Mosaico de Flickr.

Eran para mi, son mías pero no las tengo. Para nadie son importantes.
La vieja cosía sin mucho interés y en cambio yo lo puse todo. había estado esperando mis tijeras 33 anos cuando supe que ya no estaban en la casa, y siguen perdidas entre otras cosas de las irrelevantes.
Estuvimos otra vez en los jardines del palacio de Aranjuez

An old site with an even older idea

If you want to keep a written "cross section" of your thoughts now, and revisit them in the future, at your convenience, leave a message "encapsuled" here. You can also write a note to someone else to be delivered after 25, 30, 40 years...Time modifies everything. I believe that nothing of what one could write at one moment could be even recognized with precision in the future and that is the charm I see in this. It is a proof of intents. Also the only way to return to what one once felt and to discover the instability of the human character. How long can one stand for a cause unchanged? What is the time limit of a belief?
It is also possible to "communicate" with people after death. This site facilitates the means to do so, if you have the means to pay for it...well, it is innexpensive. Strangely enough they have a trial version of it!
