Impulse and action

A tattoo.

I got one because I wanted to. I had an urge and acted on it. So simple but rarely now do I have an impulse and act on it. Not questioning it. An impulse and an action. Without dismantling. Without wringing out meaning. Without worrying what anyone else might think. I did it because I wanted to and every time I look at it it reminds me that I should be impulsive. I shouldn’t wait.

It’s a triangle because I love triangles. I doodle them when I’m on the phone and in meetings when people are still talking but there’s nothing left to say. It’s what my hand and my brain conjure up when my mind is wandering.
