The Wiccan festivals have a gap of 6 weeks between each of the 8 ones. Six weeks ago, on Lughnasadh I signed up into WordPress. So as today is Mabon, the festival of the Autumn equinox, it has been six weeks since I joined the WordPress blogging community. Wow. So much has happened since! 🙂
To all my readers therefore I wish you a Merry Mabon! Whatever be your religion… as here we are united by the passion of writing and expressing ourselves, not by anything else.

Requested by my fellow readers, I’m going to show you my “dream” tattoo, just that it’s not really a dream, but reality: i.e. I’m REALLY going to get my right shoulder (classic place uh? but perfect one for the 1st time :)) tattoed!
Why get a tattoo?
Because of Dan Brown! Yep, that’s his fault 🙂 He’s published The Last Symbol – his latest book – and in it the villain is a lover of tattoos and Dan Brown therefore describes tattooing as a genuine wonderful awesome art… as in fact it IS art! Not only something to show off or to scare or to intimidate (these 3 reasons are very bad ones – if these are the goals you want to reach in getting a tattoo… well you don’t deserve one).
So here’s my tattoo design:
I was inspired by Celtic patterns (google ’em for more info ^^) as I’m very interested in the old religion (now called Wiccan religion), legends and myths… especially surrounding Ireland and Britain, i.e. like Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table 😀 Love to discover and read all of these.
The star is mainly called a pentacle – a very important symbol (for the good) in the old religion.
I hope the photos aren’t too dark and that my drawing (trials to imitate) is not that bad… Of course the tattoo designer will make it more perfect 😉
