Personal holiday card for 2011.
Sweet Dreams
Personal Holiday Card 2011 | Pen & Ink | 5.7" x 8.5"
I try to do a personal holiday card every year. It's fun plus it's more personal than a store bought card. Instead of a folded card, I decided to do a large postcard this year. The drawing is of my son and his fictional protector "Frank" the rabbit. Nothing fancy but it conveys the feelings I wanted - extreme happiness and contentment. The quote on the back is a Buddhist blessing.

"Just as the soft rains fill the streams,
pour into the rivers and join together in the oceans,
so may the power of every moment of your goodness
flow forth to awaken and heal all beings,
Those here now, those gone before, those yet to come.

By the power of every moment of your goodness
May your heart's wishes be soon fulfilled
as completely shining as the bright full moon,
as magically as by a wish-fulfilling gem.

By the power of every moment of your goodness
May all dangers be averted and all disease be gone.
May no obstacle come across your way.
May you enjoy fulfillment and long life.

For all in whose heart dwells respect,
who follow the wisdom and compassion, of the Way,
May your life prosper in the four blessings
of old age, beauty, happiness and strength."
