That’s I just really really really love Turtles Sunflower shirt. It is finished, alas. A flower for each country or state I have lived in. A paw print for all of the furry babies I have loved and will love. A butterfly for Niki. A trans symbol of beauty, growth, metamorphosis, and change. A description that beautifully summarizes Nik and our relationship. A cross within the butterfly for my grandma, who I think of daily and who is responsible for my relationship with God. A turtle, for Deltta Zeta. Which has given me the best friends you could imagine. A starfish on the turtle shell, for social work.

Becuase no matter how much bad there is in the world… you can always help that one. And then the next. Karma smybol… becuase what is life but not give and take. And for me, a sunflower. Because they can grow and thrive anywhere, sharing their beauty and persistence with all the world… My mom who is not a huge fan of tattoos just said “Wow. That is the most beautiful big arm tattoo I have ever seen”. That’s a hell of a compliment. Thank you everyone! I am so happy with it and blown away at how beautiful it is!
Really love Turtles Sunflower
This photo I took back in between 2005 or 2009 is of an old barn near Turtle Lake ND. I used this photo of mine titled Old Barn Sunflowers as inspiration for my ink drawing of which was titled Barn Three Peasants Flying. It is among my favorites of the photos I took of old barns. The photo and ink drawing were both including in the 2010 publishing of Country Life, The Upper Midwest. I just really really really love Turtles Sunflower shirt. I love the soft hues of faded reds and grays of the walls and blend of colors of the moss on the wooden shakes on the roof. When I zoom in on moss in the original photo I see hues of green, yellow, red and brown.
The haze obscuring the distant hills and live trees in the back ground poetically contrasted by the weathered old barn and dead tree in the foreground capture much of the memory of the moment when I took the picture. The crop of sunflowers planted around the old barn speaks to me as a lovely contrast and yet blend of what is past and present. These blends of soft hues including the yellow, greens and browns of the fall sunflowers and some slightly yellowing of leaves in some trees adds to much of what I love about this memory and related image.
