Praying Hands

"Blessings for Today"

is a bespoke book commission.

The client provided the text for this book.

A simple folded concertina is inset inside the lid,

so you can read the text that is written on

the möbius strips of paper housed in the Puget Sound clam shell.

"Praying Hands"

Blessings for today!


May the sun bring you new energy by day,

May the moon softly restore you by night,

May the rain wash away your worries, 

May the breeze blow new strength into your being, 

May you walk gently through the world and

know its beauty all the days of your life.

           — Apache Blessing



Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.

He is rich that owns the day…Finish every day and be done with it. …tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely, with too high

a spirit to be cumbered with old nonsense. This new day is too dear,

with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on the yesterdays.

           ​Ralph Waldo Emerson



May the blessings of this day radiate through your smile,

be helpful through your hands, and shine through your heart.
