Like a box of exquisite chocolates, 99 reasons for living is made with great care and attention. First an origami box is created by folding eight separate pieces of paper. Then the 'reasons for living' are cut by hand from fine vellum papers. Written by Lisa Chun, the reasons have a poetic sensibility with an eye on the details of everyday life. They are thoughts to ponder, ideas to implement and they make an exceptional gift suitable for may occasions.

A few of the 99 reasons for living:

"Because every moment is a poem unfolding."
"Because someone inspired you."
"Because you know the past is just a story you make up about yourself."
"Because the moon sits outside your window."
"Because you sit in the center and are still."
"Because you have a piece of chocolate waiting to be eaten."

Dimensions: 3" x 3" x 1.5"
