Small Business Saturday

It’s Small Business Saturday. Don’t forget to shop small this season. Check out our handcrafted necklace and wooden map inspired by Steinbeck.

“A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless. We find that after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us.”
-John Steinbeck

In German, Wanderlust means “enjoyment of hiking” or in modern usage a “desire to wander.” Our mini bottles are a part of a map with the word “Wanderlust” created with a Remington Ten Forty typewriter. The traveler’s bottle captures small pieces from your journey. You can collect sand, small rocks, or anything you like from your adventures. You can also order it as an empty bottle to showcase your tiny collection of memories. We offer a unisex design, a leather band with natural wood endings or a gold/silver chain.

National Poetry Day

 

balboa-island

We love reading poetry. There’s something magical when you carry a book and take it into nature and read. We’ve also been listening to poetry on vinyl. You can hear the rhythm of the words, notice the silent pauses, while the crackle from the record echoes in the space. This Emily Dickinson poem is one of our favorites and we want to share it with you on National Poetry Day. As you read the poem aloud, it’s as if you can feel the motion of the ocean waves.

Part Four: Time and Eternity
CXLI

On this wondrous sea,
Sailing silently,
Knowest thou the shore
Ho! pilot, ho!
Where no breakers roar,
Where the storm is o’er?

In the silent west
Many sails at rest,
Their anchors fast;
Thither I pilot thee,—
Land, ho! Eternity!
Ashore at last!

Emily Dickinson
