Last year I assigned a grade twelve art class a design-a-tattoo warm-up assignment, partly with the intention of having the students investigate the symbolism and imagery associated with our names, birthdays, and birth places
My origins are associated with imagery that is both elegant and venomous. What does that say about me? (Eek.)
My current professor at SFU has us thinking about whether we are earth/wind/fire/water people and about the way that these elements have taught and shaped us.
I’ve been thinking about how my animal signs are oriented to the ground. (My sign is Taurus and I am the year of the earth snake.)
Lately all I want is my snout in the soil and my belly on the earth.
