I wish you a kinder sea quote with sailboat on handmade paper


"I wish you a kinder sea" quote in navy blue script font on handmade paper with original sailboat and seagull watercolor by artist Patricia Shaw.

This is such a beautiful sentiment for anyone grieving or going through a hard time. The quote is often attributed to Emily Dickinson and although it seems like something she might write in one of her letters, I couldn't validate it. It's also in a translation by Michael Burch from one of Plato's 5th century writings.

The words are printed on handmade cotton rag paper with deckle edges. The color of the paper is a natural, unbleached white but may occasionally have tiny speckles of random color from other fibers mixed in. Size varies slightly because of the imperfect nature of handmade paper, but will be roughly 5" x 7", 8" x 10", or 11" x 14" based on your selection.
