On the back of the card:

Griffith SucreCoeur Rat is an electrician by trade and by passion. He absolutely moons over switches and currents and energy. When speaking of it, he lights up brighter than Sirius just before dawn. Typically, his jobs range from wiring newly erected high-rise buildings, to repairing fuse boxes after severe storms have taken their toll, right down to changing a simple lightbulb. Perhaps surprisingly, it is the latter that most stimulates him.  

As he pulls a fresh new lightbulb from the box and threads it into its socket, he sees pure potential; an idea just waiting to be expressed. Then, in an instant, all is illuminated and all is changed. With one flick of the switch not only does the bulb glow, but so does everything around it.

This has become an underline to everything Griffith thinks and everything he does. He has learned, in just the same moment, with one thought; one choice; one action; life can change completely. And that each of us, regardless of any real or perceived restrictions, holds this power over our state of mind and being. It is almost magical. Abra (flick) cadabra.

Proudly made in the USA.
