I like blogs that have questions that make you think. Recently over at Joey's Pad, a question was: What inspirational tattoo do you have or would you have?
Actually, I have tattoos, but none are inspirational. When I turned 50, I had my eye makeup tattooed on...Top and bottom eyeliner and a really light smudge of green-blue shadow above the top liner. Sometimes I even have my eyelashes dyed dark brown and then I'm virtually wash and wear!
My answer to the question about inspirational tattoos was that I would pick Ashes Than Dust which is part of the credo of legendary writer, Jack London...
I would rather be ashes than dust!
I would rather that my spark should burn out
in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot.
I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom
of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.
The function of man is to live, not to exist.
I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them.
I shall use my time.
I grew up very close to London's ranch in the hills of Sonoma Valley in California. I spent a lot of time roaming his property, which is an historic park, and touring the house his wife built to house all of their travel mementos.
I'm going to continue Joey's question here: How about you? What inspirational tattoo do you have or would you wear?
Thanks for dropping by!
