Nameste' Octope'

Nameste' ... literally, "I humbly bow to you"; also used as a greeting or acknowledgement of the equality of all, and pays honor to the sacredness of all --
the traditional greeting when saying the word namaste with folded hands and a slight bow
in yoga, the pose associated with this word, usually with the flat hands held palms together, fingers up, in front of the heart and a slight bow

Amanda is feeling stressed and I made this card to suggest she relax ... (the 20 dollar bill tucked inside means at least she can go out and buy coffee or chocolate or whatever her mood dictates ...)

The poem inside reads: Is your chakra on the run, are you stressed when day is done? If your life is just too taxing, take some time for some relaxing.

Actually I colored about 12 of these guys with my copics sitting outside in the sun by the pool. Now that is MY idea of relaxing! So you can expect to see more cards with an octopus in prayer.


  1. A praying/meditating octopus? How do you think up these things? It is adorable, I must say, one of the best praying images I think I have ever seen. Most are too serious or too saccharine.

  2. Well done! Maybe Amanda is ready for some pool-side time, too?

  3. Fabulous! I hope Amanda enjoys her gift and card :)


Thanks for leaving me a note! Makes it all worthwhile!
