As promised, here’s a picture of my new tattoo now that it’s healed.
EDIT: I should have mentioned originally (sorry, too much bad wine), but this amazing piece was done by the more amazing Kirsten Holliday!

Today I was astounded and saddened by the amount of blatant cruelty that affected so many in the form of anonymous hate messages to Supernatural blogs on Tumblr. That there are people who would choose to hurt rather than to heal; people who, for whatever reason, believe they will gain something by putting another person down… I can’t begin to comprehend such senseless acts. And I was struck with pain and grief for those affected.
But what warmed my heart and renewed my hope was the way that this family came together. To join as a unit, to fight and protect, to say no to hate, and say yes to love. What beautiful things we are capable of doing.
Please know that there are more people in this world who understand that lending a helping hand or speaking a kind word can make someone’s day. People who will stand up for you in the face of adversity. Who will pick you up and help you dust off your knees because they believe in you and they love you.
More than anything today I learned that what this fandom claims is true: we really are a family. So let’s show them what family really means to us. It’s more than a word. It’s a promise. Our family doesn’t end in blood. And this family will always be there for each other.
((If anyone, ever, needs someone to talk to, please do not hesitate to send me a message. My ask box is always open. Stay safe my loves.))
No matter how big and inactive you are, no matter how long-standing your hatred of running or exercise of any kind, if you give it a try and stick to it, there will come a day when it no longer sucks, no longer feels like a crazy idea, no longer makes you want to die–when life itself no longer sucks, and you no longer feel like you’re crazy. If you stick with running, the day will come when you’ll want to live forever.
