too much to hide

War will exist until that distant day when the conscientious objector enjoys the same reputation and prestige that the warrior does today. 
 John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) 35th president of u.s.

bet you didn't realize may 15th is international conscientious objectors' day.  i didn't until i glanced at the calendar this morning (wondering what calendar would list such an occasion, wonder no more - it is the 2012 syracuse cultural workers calendar,  the syracuse cultural worker calendars have been a staple at casa mouse since the mid 1980s).

today's quote by jfk is spot on!

along with being international conscientious objectors' day,  it is also tattoo tuesday.  i met the woman with today's extraordinary tattoos the other day while wandering about the neighborhood - although i didn't think i would forget her name, i have - one would think with my record of forgetting names,  i would start writing them down! 

i was so focused on the ink and discussing the various buddhist images of her sleeve tattoo, i forgot to ask her due date - but given the size and presentation of her belly,  i predict she's definitely having a may baby!    peaceful passage little one!

Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.  - Buddha

Love those Buddhist tattoos! Looks like she has a lotus flower on her inner arm...and yeah, I'd say she's ready to give birth pretty much any day!
