So I was at the gym this evening. As I did some floor exercises, holding a side plank, I had nowhere to look but at the girl in front of me, who had a tattoo. It said on her shoulder, “May I have joy, peace and happiness,” complete with the person who said this quote, like a footnote. Which made me laugh, a little anyway. What if you got a quote on your shoulder with the footnote on your ankle. Very academic! Anyhoo. Where was I? Oh yes, her tattoo. It wasn’t altogether terrible so far as tattoos go, but I did note the “I” at the centre. Hebrew blessings, just by way of example, tend to use “you” as in “May the Lord bless you and keep you…” Which, mid side plank, I could have used. Some blessing and keeping, as I haven’t done one in a very long time.
My point, you are wondering, is that we live in an egocentric age.
That’s my thought of the day. And now yours may be something like hey, that Andrea needs to work on being less judgemental. Indeed.by
