j&m's wedding card

by sven at 8:00 am

Third wedding this year: our friends Jacqueline and Mari are getting married in July. (Yay Oregon!)

Their gift is still a secret, but here's the hand-painted card I made.

"take care of each other"

And here's the inside... Simple, but heartfelt.

Interesting story: I actually figured out what I wanted to write inside the card during one of my clown classes.

There's an exercise called "Experience," where you imagine that someone from your life is going to be leaving on a boat the next day, never to return. You do a guided meditation about spending the night talking with them, driving them to the boatyard in the morning... And then at the last moment, you go with impulse and run up to end of the dock to shout one last thing.

And this is what came to me:

Take care of her!
