Description I'm descended from the Scottish Highland Clan MacLennan, as my grandmother was a MacLennan. Their motto is "Dum Spiro Spero," which in Latin means, "While I breathe, I hope." I have adopted this as my personal motto, because I feel that there is always hope. I combined our crest with the thistle, which is the flower of Scotland, and I hope to get this tattooed on my left arm some day. I drew it with my Wacom Bamboo tablet.
