Hand-Lettering Week 2: You Don't Have To Be Tall To See The Moon
Here is my second hand-lettering piece for the year.
"You Don't Have To Be Tall To See The Moon" is a sweet and yet profound sentiment that conveys the promise that while everyone may not have the same resources or opportunities, everyone has the same potential. And that means, that really..... anything is possible and any story, including your story, can have any ending! This builds on the first phrase - and the theme for the year - to Pay Attention To Your Dreams. Take your dreams seriously! Remember that no matter how small you may feel, your potential is infinite and you can reach your goals, no matter how far away they seem!
On January 1, 2014, there was a new moon; this is the dark moon, when the light from the sun is blocked by the placement of the Earth between Sun and Moon. In various ancient traditions, the new moon marks the time for starting things, for putting things into motion which will come to fruition in two weeks when the moon is full and round and fully reflecting the Sun's light (and more longer term plans as well.) The new moon happening on New Year's Day is a rare occurrence; the last one was 19 years ago. It is said that it can add more power to your plans for the coming year. Whether you believe that literally or not, you can be sure that as humanity awakens, dreams do have more power behind them for coming TRUE!
The moon has always been an object of fascination for humans since the dawn of time. I believe that there is power and guidance available through our connection to all of Nature including our dear neighbor the Moon. Sit quietly, gaze out the window at the Moon and ask her what she can help you with. Let her mystery and magic reflect back to you quiet answers. And remember: You Don't Have To Be Tall To See The Moon; you can achieve your dreams.

After having worked as an Illustrator for WNBC-TV local news, as an Information Graphics Designer at the Associated Press and a variety of other design, illustration and production forays, I've wended my way back to creating the old fashioned way, with paper, paint and pencil. Sometimes textiles, too.
