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!

The Longest Night

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

When the longest night of the year is here
Our friends and family gather near
To light a candle against the night
And warm our spirits in the wonder of light.

My first winter solstice card, written when I couldn’t find anything to celebrate the return of the light. This card has had a couple of incarnations, the first being one on which I hand colored all of the candle flames. Read the story of this card here.
