This vivid sunrise greeting card features the Latin phrase Carpe diem. This motivational phrase is often said to mean "Seize the day" but I recently read an article that said that's not the literal translation of the words. In Latin it means "plucking the day." As a metaphor, it probably means something akin to "gather ye rose buds while ye may." When we translate metaphors, we often give them a translation than attempts to convey the meaning. And "seize the day" is probably a lot more motivational than "plucking the day" isn't it?
The phrase Carpe diem is shown over a sunrise scene that is mean to suggest those first few moments of morning when the sun has yet to actually appear but the horizon is glowing with color. The night sky has not yet entirely retreated. If you're going to seize the day, you might as well get an early start.
Does the image on this Carpe diem card inspire you to make the most of your day?

What People Are Saying
I'm a Hill and when I saw this I just had to buy it. I have so many fond memories of spending summer weeks down in Montezuma at Nanny and Paw's store. I was so sad when the flood filled the store with water but it was a testament to the community when so many banded together to help out afterwards. Just know I bought this print to frame and take to Nanny so she can enjoy it as well. Thank you so much for making this ❤️

The Fox Theatre is Definitely FABULOUS! THIS BLACK AND WHITE VERSION GIVES EXTRA NOSTALGIA I believe, is why I picked this 1, though I love ALL OF Mark's pics of the Fox. The theatre is Beautiful, I went to 2 - 3 concerts there years ago & So glad it didn't get torn down. Mark captured Great details in this pic!!

She Loves It!
My girlfriend just received the print, and she loves it! We both love the vibrant colors, and Forsyth Park, Savannah in general, and Tybee Island are special to us because she lives in NC and I live in FL, so every once in a while we’ll meet in the middle and explore together.
Thank you so much!
