I think I will refer to that saying as my "frog blessing" -- this is one of my new greeting cards coming out from Amber Lotus. I just got my first samples today and they look so great and so perfect! I love the idea of my artwork forging its way through the skies in the bellies of airplanes carrying people's words and wishes tucked away inside. When I got an email from a woman in the Netherlands who had bought one of my Laini's Ladies near the cruise ship terminal in Maui and brought it home with her, I couldn't help but picture that lady flying halfway around the world on her own paper wings! I love it!
I'm including here a list of additional blessings and imperatives that I've been working on. On a very slightly related note, I recently read an article in the paper on the 10 healthiest foods for you and they were mostly what you would expect: spinach, apples, kiwis, etc, with the delightful addition of DARK CHOCOLATE!! and I've tried to make a point of eating something from that list every day (and if that means dark chocolate every day, so be it!). In the same spirit, I would like to try to live something off this list every day:
Share sweet things with delicious people -- Make art & love -- Notice the moon -- Indulge -- Deny yourself nothing -- Grow wings -- Sweet-talk yourself -- Make life fresh every day -- Bewitch someone -- Eat organic -- Make time for thinking & miracles -- Play dress-up -- Grab your daydreams & handcuff yourself to them & go wherever they go -- Wear flowers -- Sing -- Wish wildly -- See beyond -- Glow -- Kiss more -- Be cozy at the end of each day -- Encourage silliness -- Feed someone grapes -- Revel in mystery -- Create the future -- Sparkle -- Cross oceans -- Have your cake & eat it too -- Meander -- Wave to strangers -- Grow enormous flowers -- Spread hope -- Paint something red -- Dance like they did in old movies -- Make stuff from scratch!
What would you add?
