The Word Made Flesh

Yes it is real and yes it did hurt along my pinky right there. I’ve had numerous people stop me and ask what is on the side of my hand and when I show them I always get a laugh. I got it because I am a fan of Sherlock Holmes and this is his original Corn Pipe that he used to smoke. I also wanted to have it somewhere to make it completely original. I can honestly claim FIRST! My artists name was Scott Fearin of Delta 9 Tattoo here in Indianapolis, IN. #PipeTattoo

Nothing makes a man so adventurous as an empty pocket.
Victor Hugo
“It’s dark because you are trying too hard. 
Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. 
Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. 
Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. 

I was so preposterously serious in those days, such a humorless little prig. 
Lightly, lightly – it’s the best advice ever given me. 
When it comes to dying even. Nothing ponderous, or portentous, or emphatic. 
No rhetoric, no tremolos, 
no self conscious persona putting on its celebrated imitation of Christ or Little Nell. 
And of course, no theology, no metaphysics. 
Just the fact of dying and the fact of the clear light. 

So throw away your baggage and go forward. 
There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, 
trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. 
That’s why you must walk so lightly. 
Lightly my darling, 
on tiptoes and no luggage, 
not even a sponge bag, 
completely unencumbered.” 
― Aldous Huxley, Island

This is my tattoo of a quote from Thoreau - “The highest art is to change the quality of the day”. As a human being who has struggled through dark parts of life, this quote serves as reminder that one has the power to change their life of feeling from day to day.

I have found that all ugly things are made by those who strive to make something beautiful, and that all beautiful things are made by those who strive to make something useful.
Oscar Wilde
Whenever I get stressed I touch the back of my neck and it reminds me the little things don’t matter, just let it go.

Half of the harm done in this world is due to people who want to feel important.
