every so often i stop and ponder the fact that almost every little thing humans have brought into being - hammocks, ocean liners, civil disobedience - started with an idea. each one was first a picture in someone's head. when michael norris put more ink on my arm the other day, i thought back to when this tattoo was just an idea. one sweltering cerveza-soaked afternoon on our honeymoon a couple of years ago, ian began sketching our ideas on my arm.
gracias a michael norris for the new color in my life.
