When I was 25, back when I was an admin assistant to a busy politician, I got the one and only tattoo I have … a yin/yang symbol. Funny enough, I placed it over my right kidney. When I donated that kidney a few years later, the surgeon chose to do a diagonal incision, to… Read more »

Spring has just sprung here in beautiful British Columbia, Canada – yippee! So nice to get outdoors and move my body. Give a counterbalance to all the sitting at computers and drawing tablets.
