I will not be fulfilling orders through my Prose and Letters storefront from July 5 through about mid-August. I’m in the midst of downsizing and moving my workspace and won’t be able to assemble, print or ship orders with any regularity for at least a few weeks. I will still be able to receive questions through my Contact form, and to moderate comments on Journal posts, so please enjoy some of those in the meanwhile. See you soon!

Friendship

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
