I just had one of the longest nights of my life. Last night, my wife and I invited a couple of our friends and family over to our home. Every Thursday night for the past six months, we held these meetings. They were opportunities for us to hang out with our friends. My friend Keith and his wife Samantha were the last to arrive at the house. Samantha was showed off her new shamballa bracelet that Keith purchased for her. It was made from blue stones that resembled sapphires. They were as blue as the sky. Samantha bragged that it was the latest trend for important people. She always was so full of herself.
As the party progressed, everyone had a good time. We had a variety of snacks for everyone to enjoy. We had chips, dip, vegetables, sliders, pie, and a giant bowl of natural fruit punch.
I have always been fascinated by tattoos – I have one myself that I regret ever having had done, but I was young and frankly, stupid. Nearly every single one of my friends has some sort of tattoo, ranging from zombies to biomechanical creatures to even a tatuaggi fiori (as she is often to call it, to show off her Italian) – tattoos have become part of our generation. The art of tattooing has been pushed to whole new boundaries thanks to its growing popularity, with ultraviolet inks and glow in the dark inks becoming available – there are even some who have developed ink safe for the eyes! We are taking our bodies and turning them into gorgeous canvases to express ourselves and our appreciation of art on. There is just something beautiful about seeing a person who has devoted their body to the expression of this art, to see the highlights of color replacing tone of skin.
