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!

Same Stars

Price: $3.99
5 x 7 inch card and envelope, blank inside

Eadum spectamus astra,
commune caelum est,
idem nos mundus involvit,
Quid interest, qua quisque
prudentia verum requirat?
Uno itinere non pot
est perverniri ad tam
grande secretum.

We gaze up at the same stars,
the sky covers us all,
the same universe encompasses us.
What does it matter what practical system
we adopt in our search for the truth?
Not by one avenue alone
can we arrive at
so tremendous a secret.

Text by Symmachus, a Greek writer from 384 C.E.

Calligraphy and design by Cari Ferraro, 1996
