First Monday of 2013…and I’m kinda sleepy

So I seem to be getting off to an ambitious and yet sleepy start this year.  Ambitious because I have three writing projectcreate that I have decided must see a fair amount of progress within the next six months, a writers group that I will be participating in starting tomorrow along with all my usual stuff (full time job, occasional theatre jobs, paying attention to husband, etc).  Sleepy because…well…I have no idea why I’m so sleepy but damnit I AM.

With that in mind I bring you today a sort of…poll question if you will.

What line, or two, do you love so much that you might have it tattooed onto your body?

Mine would be (and actually might be someday soon) the word “Timshel” from East of Eden.  Part of me would like to have the entire explanation of that word from the book tattooed but it’s rather long and visually I don’t think it would work that well.  But the word itself is what that moment and, in fact, that entire book is about…I love it.


So come on…what’s yours?

      That’s a tough question. Most of the tattoos I have in mind are images. One of our students has ”and whether then I do not know” from The Hobbit on her wrist.

      I’m going to have to think on this…

      “Nature’s first green is gold” by Robert Frost although I might switch it and use the last line of the poem “Nothing gold can stay”

      GREAT question.
