This one is probably the silliest of my tattoos, but always makes me smile.

It's from a line in a blog post from “Abbie the Cat Has a Posse”, which is “written” by a now-deceased cat who was a terrible speller but remarkably articulate and philosophical.

most boats when they go out they have a Map and a PLan we are going to sail here bring cargo there have a vacation here get into a Big War with otherb oats over there cats well they dont care too much for that kind of thing that s why you havent ever seen a cat sail a boat cause they are saiilng some place where there arent boats with maps and plans off thye go and they say see you when I get back maybe there will be PInapples

It’s a reminder that this world is much too big and surprising to ever know or really plan for. So just dive in (or sail off).

And maybe there will be pineapples.
