Trumpets and Flames

When Muriel McMahon was presenting "The Legacy of Oppression," this quote came up as part on the conversation -

“The only way to walk through fire? - Become Fire!”

I don't remember the source, but I relate to this quote deeply. Once again, I refer to my tattoo-story. This time, to my choice of blending of trumpet flowers with flames to initiate transformation.

The trumpet flowers were a nod to Orpheus, god of music. He made the mistake of looking back at his wife Eurydice after he had climbed out of Hades. Brutally, his look condemned her forever to a life in hell.

More on this to come, but for now, here's my tattoo, "Trumpets and Flames"
