Sometimes I feel really afraid by the sheer force that comes with being human; the potential pain, the exquisite joy, the breathless wonder. Sometimes I get overwhelmed by the absolute beauty that exists in the universe; the way the light falls across a surface, the sound of a certain song, words spread across a page.
Sometimes I meet people and feel like I’ve known them my entire life. And a life before that. And another life before that.
Sometimes I look at the night sky and it feels like home.
You be the moon. I’ll be the stars.
Sometimes love scares me so much that I wonder how we survive it all. Sometimes I think that art is the only thing left that makes sense in the world. Sometimes I think that strangers are God's best kept secret. Sometimes crying is the only thing that makes me feel better. Sometimes the ocean whispers my name.
Sometimes my soul aches. Sometimes my spirit soars. Sometimes my heart breaks.
And so I turn to stories to navigate this life…
To create healing where there is pain. To create connection where there is loneliness. To create light where there is darkness.
And to write the story that only I can tell.
The story of a girl who believes that the only thing scarier than falling apart…is never shattering at all.
