When I think of you, it is with thoughts of butterflies and flowers. I did not know their names until you told me, like a precious secret, like this knowledge was the only true wealth, and how lucky that we could be rich together. Perhaps I would not know to love the world from the roots up, as you do, without your quiet enthusiasm for everything that grows.
It might seem a perilous undertaking of the spirit, to see what beauty is still alive in this world of smoke, and speed, and fear, but as I question if there is hope for us in the times to come, I remember you in your garden, smiling, and showing us that hope is everywhere if you know where to look.

We are a family-run art and gift company located in the upper rightmost corner of Iowa in a town called Decorah, in an area known as the driftless region, in a crater left by a 470 million-year-old meteorite.
You would think that living in a valley surrounded by alien shale would have an effect on people, and you might be right, but to our knowledge there have been no studies to determine the truth of the matter. As far as we can tell, people around here seem normal enough, but then again, once you go beneath the surface of just about anything, things can get weird fast.
Doing our best to bottle a little of our own weirdness, we spend our days making art and thinking about things like whether it is worth the extra effort to toast the bread before you make a sandwich, or the true meaning of flowers, or what the world would be like if everyone tried a bit harder to be nice to each other.
In a fortunate twist of fate, we are lucky enough to get to make pleasant things for you to share with the people in your life, to tell them how much they mean to you, and that is something we are really quite happy about. So thank you, from all of us here at StoryPeople, for helping us to spread a bit of gentleness throughout this wild world, one friendly story at a time.
