  1. Oh my goodness, I love your artwork. I love the pink horse/Pegasus and the look of love on it’s face and how relaxed you look as it nuzzles into you. I so long to feel that way…to let go and not worry…to let my guard down.
    And your tattoos. What are they of if you don’t mind my asking. I am covered in them as well. I can’t explain why I have them except to say that it’s a way to claim myself. To mark my body with things that are meaningful to me.
    I’m enjoying your blog ❤

    • the art in that particular post was actually done for me by an artist and fellow Move of God cult survivor, Sheila Burton. The rest of the art in this category (aside from that post) is some of my art: https://venniekocsis.wordpress.com/category/art

      My tattoos – well, each one has a very special meaning. My foot, has a celtic cross, a reminder of the beauty of the cross before religion took it, and that it be where my feet are rooted in love. On my left calf, a piece from a friend who was learning, and I just really wanted some of her ink on me – it is a vine w/ a dragonfly. My lower back, an abstract butterfly. My back is covered with a full mermaid and the celtic symbol for beautful soul you can see it here:

      My right arm has a guitar and music notes falling down it. my neck says “and this too shall pass” in Gaelic. My Pisces symbol on the back of my neck, and a cross with a heart behind my ear you can see here:

      Tattoos are particular for me. Each one has specific meaning. I have “The Venomous One” on my left arm, a name that was given to me when I performed poetry live, that it was venom. That was my first tattoo. Each one has deep meaning to me, and was thought out for a while.

      I agree so much when you say “to mark my body with things that are meaningful”. and also, for me, protecting. The process of being tattooed in and of itself is a transcendent experience for me and the piece that I choose always has a specific reason and meaning for me.

      What are some of yours?
