Written on the body

“I’m telling you stories. Trust me.”

- Jeanette Winterson, The Passion
Contrariwise is a marvelous collection of literary tattoos that includes lines from Dante, Wilde, Eliot, Cummings, Creeley, Kerouac, Shakespeare, Whitman, Frost, Winterson, Gaiman, Sophocles, Plath, Joyce, Vonnegut, Blake, etc., etc. It's enough to get me thinking about lines of my own...

I wonder what quote you'd have tattooed on yourself (I thought this was yours at first)? I always think of you toting around these brilliant little books full of hand-copied quotes...

Probably something from Four Quartets... What a lovely memory...thank you.
