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!

Dance, then wherever you may be,
I am the Lord of the Dance, said he,
And I’ll lead you all, wherever you may be,
And I’ll lead you all in the Dance, said he.
I danced in the morning when the world was begun
And I danced in the moon and the stars and the sun,
And I came down from heaven and I danced on the earth,
At Bethlehem I had my birth.

Words by Sydney Carter, used with permission. Sung to the tune of the old Shaker hymn, “Simple Gifts,” this song is a classic in Revels productions around the U.S. At the end of the song, the lights come up and audience members join the cast in a long, interweaving line of dance. Go here for more information about Revels shows across the country.

Knotwork is adapted from a border pattern in the Book of Durrow, an 8th century Irish illuminated manuscript.

Calligraphy and design by Cari Ferraro, 1994
