Well, sometimes a person just feels frazzled and pulled in a multitude of directions. It feels as if Life is out to get you and you just can’t catch a break. On those days, a little self-care is called for; gather your resources and protect your inner self. The idea of seeking protection or support was on my mind recently and it may be because of St. Patrick’s Day having just past that the prayer known as “St. Patrick’s Breastplate” reoccurred to me. Whether you’re a believer or not the one thing this prayer conveys is a real covering of all the angles approach. St. Patrick wasn’t leaving anything to chance. Check it out and tell me what you think.

 

It’s believed there’s a heavy pagan influence to this prayer “attributed” to St. Patrick  which is possible due to the fact he spent six years as a slave among the pagan Irish of his day. However, I think this doodle is a good example of when sometimes an idea just meanders far away from what I had originally thought. I may have gone just a little crazy with the curling lines. So much for legibility. Maybe I was influenced subconsciously by the tale of St. Patrick driving those wiggly snakes out of Ireland.

 

As St. Patrick has you covered with his prayer, we have you covered with the coolest t-shirts and stickers and tote bags and other items to give you the boost you need to take on the day and kick Satan in the (insert expletive). Go forth and conquer!
