We have made gold a metaphor of stability yet chemically gold is a transition metal. Human life transitions, although an inevitable rite of passage, can be challenging to say the least. SOLID / FOOL / THANK YOU AND SORRY are four sentiments that if genuinely expressed during these times, forge anchors for loved ones in the throws of change. Gold is thought to have been produced in supernova nucleosynthesis and to have been present in the original dust from which the Solar System formed. It has serious transformational clout and history. Just as someone admitting they were a fool, saying sorry, thanking you or acknowledging the solidity you provide them in their lives, past or present has.
Silkscreened, gold foil stamped & letter pressed its blank inside to let you do all the talking.
As it happens the man who advanced the theory of supernova nucleosynthesis mentioned above, Sir Fred Hoyle, was not only an amazing scientist but a brilliant writer. I read his book The Black Cloud a few years ago and it has haunted me in a good way ever since. If you like pre and post apocalyptic Sci-fi novels this is a must read…it also helps to escape into the written word world for a break or inspiration floored by transitions. So hey, send the card and the book!
