tattooed in uganda

(His angels will guard us in all our ways – for melinda ozongwu)

the other day, a lovely woman named melinda emailed me from uganda. she was on her way to london, and while there, was planning to get a phrase tattooed on her forearm. the design was finalized, the appointment was made, everything was ready. and then, so she says, she stumbled upon this blog. and overhauled her entire design. what an honor it was to take up the task of creating something she could really fall in love with. something that she’d look at every day, and know that taking the extra steps to make it perfect was well worth it. personally, i think it looks just lovely.
