As part of a Dramatists Guild campaign, I composed a letter to our incoming President and Vice President about the particular challenges facing theatre artists and the arts in general and how we must, as a nation, honor the socio-economic value professional artists and the arts sector bring to the United States of America.
An actual working envelope charm hangs with an empty heart charm a carved Czech glass rosebud and a round bronze filigree edged glass charm with an image of cherry blossoms and the Ovid-inspired quip, “Love knows no rules of good behavior.”
Inside the envelope is an original verse on a scrap of paper.
“petals of distraction / layered in defense / around her empty heart.”
Ideally, the buyer will place their own love note inside.
I like it but I think it may need one more small touch. Suggestions?
