For the past few years I have been planning to get a tattoo. The tattoo is to mark a rite of passage in my grief journey. I told myself that I wouldn't do this until I was sure that I was back in my body and in my right mind. So, here I am back in my body and future focused.
The tattoo I am planning is a dragonfly. In Native American culture dragonflies symbolize renewal and of course, I love the legend of the dragonfly, which is about the spirit of our lost loves still being with us after "that transformation humans call death."
April 9th, my friend Deb and I are going to the tattoo place and I am going to get it done. I have been looking at designs today. Here is one I like:
So here goes the next step on this journey. Perhaps this sounds weird but for me it has been a long-time coming and I knew I would know when that day came. It's here!!
What do you all think of this design????
