my name is sara and i am a dreamer
mostly i keep to myself
sometimes this makes me happy; and other times it makes me sad
i have a dreamcatcher that hangs above my bed, and yes, i believe it works
i am awkward in public
i talk, sing and giggle to myself
and i believe in fairies and unicorns and narnia and love
i prefer being barefoot
but i have a collection of pretty shoes
i have never been in love, but i am in love with everything
i talk to the trees and the wind
and spend more time in the forest alone than i probably should
when i go swimming in a lake, i recite quotes aloud:

The point of diving in a lake is not immediately to swim to the shore but to be in the lake, to luxuriate in the sensation of water. You do not work the lake out; it is an experience beyond thought."

i buy lots of journals, because the thought of blank paper excites me
they remain empty, because it seems wrongs to ruin their stark white perfection
i like abandoned places, but am afraid of abandonment
but i, we, us
mustn't be afraid
because there is much, so much to do, see, hear, touch, feel


i would like to say thank you for all the beautiful comments everyone left on the last post. i cannot even express how much better they made me feel. i love you all ♥

xx always,

i love this,
and your words are perfect in their truth.

blank pages make my head swim with thought and possibilties, and although to mark the pages in ink almosts feels wrong, i think i am more inclined to soak them in pictures of the world and things they would never know otherwise. to have a permenant connection to the exact moment pen touched paper and left a message that might otherwise become a lost memory. x

we could go anywhere..

Sara, this is beauty and truth and love, pure love. I felt tears welling up as I read this, it is so honest and pure and inspiring. I want to live, I must never forget to live. Thank you. Honestly, this post is life-changing. ♥ ♥ ♥


So relatable. I feel like you wrote this post about me. Amazing. I'm gonna feature your blog in mine, hope that's alright. :]

I think we are twins. I have said this from the moment I found your blog. I remember it made me cry, because you had taken a piece of my soul and put it into words more beautifully and eloquently and fully than I ever could, and I felt like someone understood and that I had found someone finally who could comprehend how it felt to be a wild girl within a cage built by her own mind.
All of this is true, despite our age gap, I think we would be the best of friends.
Please believe how lovely, and inspiring and truly beautiful you are.
I must BE, I must stop caging myself in. You are right.
All my love

P.S thank you for always staying with me and your constant kindness. x

Sara, it is important to fall in love in everything because that means you can always see the beautiful side instead of the ugly ones. it is a rare gift:)

I love your post, and yes we shouldn't afraid. I would love to do things like what you have mentioned, too, if only I have friends to do that..
