Dr Dolan's story, printed on this Poetic Art Card, "Apple River": Imagine a place where faeries live and children play, where old folks reminisce about memories of raspberry picking and lemonade. It is nature at its finest; enriching the lives of hard working people for generations. See yourself there, breathing in the gentle wind and soaking up the tender sun. Let the joy of the land tickle your spirits. Play, laugh, sing, swing and skip. For every laugh that is inspired here, an apple grows on the grand tree beside the river. Every year, an apple replaces the one before. The happy tree is full and ripe to share. As the apples gather like people in a crowded party, the tree releases them out onto the ground and into the river; sending little red gifts of joy for anyone who happens upon one.
That tickley happy energy is created and shared from one lover to another, from one mother to a child, from one stranger to a new found friend. As long as the children play, and the old folks reminisce of their own childhood dreams, there will always be laughter to be lived, and apples to share.
So go ahead, take a healthy juicy bite of your own life, and live with all the magic and happiness that you can. ...This is Apple River, and this is your chance to believe.

ABOUT POETIC ART CARDS/MINI ART PRINTS: (Cards can be framed as little art prints! Non-folding, postcard format!)
Dr Franky Dolan's touching writing style has been published in numerous magazines, for his unique ability to provoke nostalgia and inspiration. He had a dream of creating these little cards, which can be shared abundantly, all for the purpose of lifting the heavy hearts of the world. He created an entire series of deeply beautiful poetic stories that accompany his original paintings and creations. Now, those powerful images and poetic stories come together in one easily shared package. These are much more than just simple greeting cards, they are true works of literature and visual art.
Each card is printed in a one-sheet (non-folded) format that can be handled like beautiful little art prints, framed and hung on the wall; or they can be traded or shared like traditional collectable cards. In order to maximize the flexibility of these cards, they come as a single sheet of glossy cardstock paper, like a postcard format. The backside has the accompanying poetic story, with enough open space for you to write your own little sweet notes to someone special. Complimentary crisp white envelopes are included for every card.
DETAILS: The cards measure a standard 5.5" by 4.25". ...What fun to have and to share these little magical works of art!
