strength on the right) and a Oriental style dragon surrounded by crashing
waves with a lotus blossom on my left arm and a dog's paw made up of celtic
knotwork between my shoulder blades just under my neck. The Koi was done

was your childhood hero?:
in Salem, Mass. In 1773, Nathaniel Bowditch would later be regarded as
the Father of Modern Navigation. He was apprenticed to a ship’s
chandler at the age of 12 and by the age of 22 went to sea like the rest
of his family. Between the years of 1795 and 1802, Bowditch wrote the
New American Practical Navigator. This book revolutionized the
way sailors charted the seas and is still in general use today. The most
significant aspect of Nathaniel Bowditch is, IMHO, the fact that he had
no formal schooling after the age of 10. All of his work as a navigator,
mathematician, translator and scientist came from his own self-taught
I have scored INTJ before too.
