bits and pieces

Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other's eyes for an instant?

Henry David Thoreau (12 july 1817 - 1862) essayist, poet and philosopher

i believe i've said it before, and i'll say it again - summertime and the living is busy and there's not much time for blogging. in order to not totally neglect the mouse, i think for the summer i'm going long on snaps and short on sentences!

living in a highly inked corner of the universe, i've been toying with the idea of initiating a new weekly feature - since i adore alliteration, it seems only fitting to tag tuesdays as tat tuesday.

we start off the series with the beautiful tat below on an even more beautiful young woman who most graciously gave me permission to take her photo and share her tat with the world (or at least my corner of the cyberworld). the woman is on staff of the market garden brewery, one of cleveland's newest additions to our wonderful food (and drink) scene.

the market garden is located on w. 25th street in the ohio city neighborhood of cleveland - this area of town was recently named by usa today as one of the ten greatest places to bar-hop around the world! the other cities on the list include: rio de janerio (brazil), dublin (ireland), the williamsburgh neighborhood of brooklyn, seville (spain) , portland (oregon), aspen, austin, and new orleans - to read blurbs about each place click on the usa today link above.

by the way, with respect to the tattoo above, i will have to go back to get the back story - the market garden was so busy there wasn't time to really talk ......

And what a beautiful young woman she is! I could keep busy on Tat Tuesday by looking no further than my own family.
