I like scars; I like tattoos, probably for the same reason I love art--an entire story told, interpreted, individualized without the need for language. I do not believe the depth of our experience, our emotional life, or what truly moves us out of bodily existence and into spirit/heart/flow can be expressed with words.
It cannot be told; it can only be shown.
This is the oldest rule of writing, and why we have so few
who have mastered the art of it.
