National Tattoo Day

OK, I am a wuss, total wimp about tattoos. I would rather have a needle put in my arm to give blood than to sit through a needle put ink in my arm for hours. Yes the logic on this is probably strange but heck I am who I am.

If I were to get a tattoo and that is IF it would be something small that would be above the short sleeve line as to not be problematic for work.

This is what I would get. This is the Native American Thunderbird and when you shorten it you get “T-Bird” which is my nickname. I don’t plan on getting this any time soon but this is what I would go with.

World Emoji Day #worldemojiday

Today is World Emoji Day which is kinda cool. I use them sparingly because I prefer to use words in my communications. Symbolic communication is nothing new but this method of expression is as popular as it ever been. Short form messaging is aided in the use of Emojis so it can be helpful. So happy Emoji everyone.

Daily Prompt – Word Of The Day: Amble

Life is so fast paced and hectic so when you get a chance to take your time and set your own pace why not do that. Maybe we need to amble more instead of running and speeding through our day to day existence. Do this especially when visiting a museum or taking a walk on a trail. Learn to savor, experience and be open to all the things you are encountering because you may not see them again.
