The Bitter and the Sweet and a rainbow dollar.

I am embarking on a career as a calligrapher and I needed this "ceremony". The most difficult part was the doodle sheet. I added an extra twist by adding a few drops of water to the paper to represent tears, happy and sad. The pen would skip over these spots sometimes tearing a hole, but I kept going. Like in life, you have to keep going. By the end of the page I was tired, my hand hurt, but I was scribbling a dark consistent line. Sorry, I forgot to take a picture. 

Then there is my rainbow dollar. I added metallic silver and gold in places and on the back, over the one, since it is my first rule, I wrote "Don't Settle". As with all matters of the heart, you will know it when you find it."

I placed all pictures of my the guy who first broke my heart and for better or worse made me who I am today as well as a momento from that time that I have been holding on to for far too long

I mailed it yesterday, so let us see just how efficent the US Postal Service is.
