This is Sam's tattoo from Mark Z. Danielewski's House of Leaves: The main character, Johnny Truant, strings these seemingly random words: Known. Some. Call. Is. Air. Am. and follows it with "Incoherent? Yes. Entirely without meaning? I'm afraid not." The assortment of words is actually phonetic Latin for "Non sum qualis eram." or "I am not what I once was."
I think I want a family tree. When we got married the oak tree was a symbol we used, the oak for its endurance, the fruit (acorn) for its fertility. Now I'd like to tie all of those things together with my kids, my hubs and our oak tree all together permanently on my body. :)
