    Hope you can hold on to.

    Art prints, meditations, books. I believe in making things with heart, things that last a lifetime and impact your life (after loss) for the better. Thoughtful, helpful, a joy to give and receive. The way it should be.

      May You Be Free // A Prayer for Peace Wherever You Are

      This is a prayer for peace for all of us who've known the power of grief and the balm of friendship, who've been touched by the hands of despair but who still choose life. Wherever you are now -- wherever you've been and wherever you're going next -- may you open your heart to the freedom that's still available to you, whatever it is you decide that freedom means for you.

      Disorientation // A Science Poem by Astrophysicist Katie Mack

      This science poem is, oh, so beautiful, and that is a VERY big understatement. It's written by theoretical astrophysicist Katie Mack. She studies dark matter, the early universe, galaxy formation, black holes, cosmic strings, and the ultimate fate of the cosmos.
