Stories exist everywhere. They hide behind the everyday ordinary. They peek their heads out every once in awhile, wondering if we will notice them, if we will take the time to explore them.
Our lives are not built in the big and the grand. Rather, they are formed and sculpted in the day after day after day after day. They are molded in the faithful persistence to show up time and again, to show up as we are, nothing to prove.
This is what fuels me.
I am a writer, a graphic designer. More times than not, I can be found outside and without sunscreen always. If I could, I would live on the water 24/7, 365 days a year. Although life is frantic and chaotic, it is stillness and silence that I crave, begging them to pull up a chair and stay awhile.
This is me.
