This 4 1/2 x 6 1/4 inch notecard features an image of Fin Laramie Florida Panther. Fin Laramie’s story is on the back of the card. According to the artist, around the time of the last snow of the season, Fin Laramie decided, having never before actually seen snow, to head north for a holiday. In the words of the artist…
“A Florida Panther is a rare breed on all accounts. Fin runs on integrity and conviction. He speaks up when he believes it’s right and stands up when he knows he has to fight. But his inherent compassion and empathy run just as deep. He listens more than he speaks, understands more than he knows and gives more than he keeps.
Fin, by trade and passion, is a carpenter. He could build a well appointed home with nothing more than a few wood chips, some Elmer’s glue and one thin dime. Having lived through myriad hurricanes in the South, Fin set out to build a home base where everyone could gather for news and updates, ride out future storms and stay while their own homes were being rebuilt.
The craggy, winding trail to the building site was peppered with rocks and roots, crossing over a gully, through a thicket and across a creek. It is here that the Main Hall now sits, offering under its aegis both sanctuary and comfort. Just like Fin.”
The inside of the card is blank.
