• Date: It was first spotted in 2006.
• Meaning: • Meaning: From an interview with Entertainment Weekly with Angelina Jolie (June, 2008):
“What’s the deal with Brad’s new tattoo?
I drew that. We went to Davos. It’s not that we were bored at the World Economic Forum, but one night we didn’t have anything to do, so I was drawing on his back.
So it’s not permanent?
It is. But I was just sketching.
On him?
On him, yeah.
And you thought, ”Let’s make it a tattoo”?
He just liked it! The picture everybody saw was kind of awkward, but it just lines up beautifully on his back, just enhances the part of the body I like.
So it doesn’t mean anything per se.
I mean, it’s meaningful in that it’s us making angles and shapes out of each other’s body, that kind of a thing.”

• Date: It was first spotted in 2006.

I wish you a good journey through Danny’s writings. It is my sincere hope that his spirit and values will radiate from all of you who he inspires. I hope that, like me, you will be able to laugh with Danny as he navigates you through the absurdités de l’existence. Mainly, I trust that Danny’s flame will keep burning in you as it does in me, his wife. — Mariane Pearl, Paris, France.
