My tattoo! UPDATED... The reason why.

This is the original drawing for my tattoo, it is on the back of my shoulder. it is my only one, and will remain my only one (If I don't tattoo some sunflowerseeds and breadcrumbs for my bird, haha!)

The reason why:

Right before I met my husband I had this dream:

I dreamt I was a bird with one broken wing. Don't know what these birds are called in english... I was seeing this from above, this bird sort of limping around not being able to fly.

Then I saw a little sparrow coming, he flew in and gave me something, seeds I think, to eat.

I interpreted this dream as someone, seeming small and insignificant, coming along and giving me something I needed.

And then this young wonderful boy entered my life and nurtured me back to inner beauty and confidence.
He is not "Sparrow" anymore. He is a falcon, strong enough to carry me on his back. But I will never forget little bird, and he always will be that, in his heart.

Thanks, guess I'm really making people sick here with blogging about my darling husbear, but after three years of NOT blogging about him I deserve it ;)

Key to the story is: Listen to your dreams. They yield valuable information :)

I recently (some months back) had the most amazing dream...provoked by problems I was having on the job....even in my sleep I was working to overcome the difficulties and my emotions about it.....

and every few years I have a dream about my lost love.... and in every one he comes back to me and I am gloriously happy and then he leaves me and I am bereft again.

...Kat sa...

oh!!! I love the idea of a tat to feed the bird...that is so Cosmic!

Thanks MP, I promise you I will, but it will be a little while to wait for it, I have to get it a little "refreshed" first :)

Love and light!!
