I just got a beasty new tattoo. It was very, very painful and/but I love it. Thank you, Fred Raph. Niiiiice work.
I love the poem, To A Young Artist In Contemplation (for allan) by Sia Figiel… this is an exert:
and when no one else listens
and when no one else understands you
go back to the sea
and the mana of salt
over and over
as you begin y(our) journey
