The Phoenix and the Bug

Forgive me for not always writing. I have a tendency to binge when it comes to my activities. Some months are busier than others. I certainly struggle at times to balance all of my various activities. Struggle is part of the growth; eventually, my motions will possess fluidity and I will add something else to my plate to see if I can balance it too; and so is life. Constantly evolving ourselves from one moment to the next; a new image. Hopefully we are wiser as we are reborn into each moment.

I'm getting my tattoo covered next month. I got a dragon when I was a teenage and part of it scabbed off. It wasn't completed and I never ever did anything about it. I've spend the last 15 years overly aware of its presence on my arm, many summers of my youth were spent hiding it. For the last few years I've been putting a lot of thought into what will cover it and looking for the right tattoo artist for the job. I've decided upon a Phoenix, it holds a lot of meaning for me personally and is a symbol of strength for me. I'm very excited about this. It has been a long time coming and I've put a lot of thought into it this time around.

I don't have a sketch of the actual tattoo design to show you but I can show you its inspiration.


It looks so much more feminine than many of the phoenix tattoos I have seen. That is one of the reason I like this design so much. I think I'm a little excited.

I've been laid up the last few days with a bad viral infection. I've had a sore throat to the point that I couldn't swallow and I'm stuffed up and dopey. I've taken this opportunity to relax in bed for a couple days and watch Netflix while I drink copious amounts of lemon-ginger tea with raw honey and a dash of ground cayenne pepper. It has helped sooth my throat quite a bit while creating enough heat in my body to open up my passageways. I think I'm on the upward mend, as of today. Rest is good for the body. I also managed to catch up on some much needed sleep after a weekend of sleep deprivation and gigs.
