My Prose and Letters storefront is open, but please practice patience while I package and ship your order. The downsizing and moving project is only partially complete so I am working from a minimal setup while life in all its chaos roils around me. Good times! If you need an order in a hurry, please do contact me, and I will do my best to expedite your order. Thanks!

5 x 7 inch card and envelope, blank inside

Oh, the comfort
The inexpressible comfort
of feeling safe with a person
Having neither to weigh thoughts, nor measure words
But pouring them all right out
just as they are
Chaff and grain together
Certain that a faithful hand
will take and sift them
Keep what is worth keeping
And with a breath of kindness
Blow the rest away.

Poem by Dinah Maria Mulock Craik, an English author who wrote it in her 1859 novel A Life for a Life

Calligraphy and design by Cari Ferraro, 1995
