My name is Ginger, but I'm not. Though sometimes I think about it and sometimes feel like I should be. I was born on August 20 barely on the Leo/Virgo cusp, but with 9 planets in Virgo - so yeah, I'm more Virgo than not. :-P
I have 2 tattoos and want a 3rd. My first one I got when I was 33. I was never very rebellious, and was a late bloomer in the sense that I really only started finding myself in that magical year. My first tattoo is the picture you see. I created it. I didn't want just any tattoo from a sample book or an image on the wall - it needed to be unique and symbolic of who I am. Where I've been and where I'm going. My second tattoo is the original EH Shepard illustration of Eeyore standing on his head from the original Winnie the Pooh books. Happy Eeyore. :-)
Growing up I always felt drawn to the little green anole lizards that live here, almost like a totem spirit or animal guide. I've lived in so many places that I feel like a chameleon at times - changing my exterior to fit in while still being myself on the inside. The compass rose/mariner's compass design symbolizes where I'm going and where I've been. I've always found it fascinating and comforting; Geometric and symmetrical, my dad always would draw them for us. And the colors - green, blue and purple - are my favorites.
I post erratically, but watch constantly. If you friend me, tell me why or I probably won't friend you back.
