Yesterday I posted 5 “timshel” tattoos. Here are two written in Hebrew.
This belongs to Ryann.
This belongs to Hannah Waterman.
The tattoo is from John Steinbeck’s East of Eden. It means “timshel” and it is in Hebrew.
I was inspired by this passage because it spoke to my own personal perspective on choice and how that fits in with in an idea of “God’s will” for me, I also am Jewish in background – something I relate to as a culture and a history and less as a religion, so having it done in the Hebrew script felt meaningful and personal, and, finally, as a passionate reader, it was very meaningful to me to choose a moment that I loved from a book that I loved.
