Miniature book necklace with a charm written inside to ward off writer’s block.

The writing inside: Absit omen

This is Latin for “May the omen be absent”, which means may this not be an omen.

The words are a psychological talisman to ward off the ever-dreaded writer’s block.

These are part of the pop-up “shop”, Into the forest, included in the Oracles & Evacuations exhibit.
