My house is full of origami, dragons in particular. With a new kitten around it was only a matter of time before it came down to cat vs dragon. It’s so gorgeous to see our tiny troublemaker battling fierce creatures and winning. Thankfully DS1, maker of dragons, is happy to sacrifice some of his many, many creations for the greater good. We have a basket of paper offerings—dragons, unicorns, various other animals, flowers, and intricately woven balls—for Cleo to choose from at will. I fully expect to get up one morning and discover that she’s chosen to upend the basket and either scatter or shred its entire contents.
I can’t help but think there’s a lesson to be learned. Nothing is impossible. If a tiny kitten can take on dragons and emerge victorious, what might WE be able to do if we let go of our fears? And don’t you want to find out?
