I’ve been interested in the art of origami, or paper folding, for a very long time. I think it’s the way a simple piece of paper, or a few pieces, can be coaxed into making familiar shapes, or even just abstract shapes. The only limits seem to be the creator’s imagination and the limits of folding a piece of paper. Mostly for my own information, I’m looking into it a bit more. Here’s a few links I dug up:
When I wake in the morning, I listen for the usual sounds, like birds and a little bit of the wind. Sometimes, the sounds of a distant train reach me ears, or, a nearby helicopter (I’m close to a freeway.) Pretty often, as well, I hear my nephew getting rambunctious downstairs.

Copper is an interesting metal. It’s fairly common, so it’s used in many ways, from currency to electronics. It’s also an element I never give much thought to, except to recall that when it oxidizes, you get the greenish color.

All this talk of copper got me thinking about pennies, so here’s a couple of sayings I’m aware of:
Find a penny, pick it up, and all the day you’ll have good luck.
A penny saved is a penny earned.
