Dance the Globe . . . and take a big scarf with you
I had a brainstorm this week, and I acted on it. What would it be like to have my favorite printer, Globe Printing, create a new business card for me?
A few months ago, I told my friend Penney, an artist who paints free and quirky, that I felt as though I could dance the globe, that my feet were that light, that I wanted to fly around this planet on my dancing feet telling my stories and rejoicing in the stories of others. After yoga that night, she presented to me a gift, a watercolor painting of a purple and green globe with a glorious aqua-gowned figure dancing above it, around it, with her long arms extended to the sky, clutching the largest silkiest catching-the-wind scarf ever! And the words: Dance the Globe . . . and take a big scarf with you. It was exuberant! It was exactly how I felt. Penney had painted my dream!
And three days ago, I brought it all to Globe, and voila!!! New business cards! Penney’s painting and words on the front. And my dream job on the back: Helen Haskell Remien: Storytelling Traveler. This morning, I’m going to pick them up and I’m going to wear a big scarf!
