Happy Christmas! I had my mother take a shot of my tattoo, all healed, while visiting for the holidays, and I thought I would share it here.
I've also submitted the tattoo to this literary tattoos book, which is still accepting for the next week. Several people have pointed out the project, and I'm also sending it along to Contrariwise. May as well pass along the tattoo love, but I wanted to make certain I had a healed picture for sending it out.
As far as presents are concerned, I am now swimming in more books--books on Elizabeth Bishop, essays suggested by Ellen Bryant Voigt, plenty to keep my mind turning over for months.
