John Greenleaf Whittier (1897-1892) was an American poet, editor, and political activist.  During the early part of his career as a poet Whittier established the Liberty party (1840), helped support John C. Fremont’s presidential bid (1856), and founded Atlantic Monthly (1857).  Perhaps as indirect result of these activities, Whittier’s poetry was not well received by the public and critics until after the Civil War when his poetry focused on religion and nature (poets.org).

His poem “Mabel Martin” was printed as a single illustrated volume in 1876 by J.R. Osgood & Co.  It is in a beautiful blind tooled leather binding with gilt foreedges, gold end bands, and vibrant marbled paper.  “Mabel Martin” is about the daughter of woman who was tried as a witch.  She is an outcast in her community and prays for death. The poem concludes with her betrothal to Esek Harden.

1 week-old piercings:
Flat helix with a white gold & diamond flower end from BVLA
Philtrum with a moonstone end from Neometal.
Both done by Jesse at Thrive Studios in Cambridge, ON Canada. He was awesome & really impressed me. Totally worth the hour drive from Toronto. I’ll definitely return.

Other piercings:
19-year old tragus done in Dallas, TX. New Neometal chocolate crystal end.
11-month old daith with Anatometal (I think) CBR by Amy from Twisted Images in Louisville, KY.
1st lobe done with a gun when I was 12. 2nd lobe pierced by myself when I was 13. DON’T EVER DO THAT! Stupid stunt—it was infected (NOT simply irritated) for-freaking-ever.
