Hello I’ve decided to create a public blog (not to just strangers, but to people I know as well) because i thought to myself, why not? I’ve had multiple blogs throughout the years and thought I’d try a new one!
Maybe some of this will resonate with you, maybe you’ll find it interesting!
I apologize for the layout and lack of WordPress knowledge. I am new to this and my graphic design skills have been lost in transit for some time now. i’ll figure this out (hopefully!) I’ve never taken a creative writing class so I don’t really know the “logistics” behind much of my writing. I don’t have any guidelines. Nearly everything I write veers on the side of free-writing. If you have any tips or suggestions, feel free to let me know! :)
This is not a self-portrait.
This is not an accurate representation of who I am. Is anything really?
This is a compile of everything I love, a collection of everything that moves me. This is a transformation of the mind, a metamorphosis of the heart.
Mainly though, it’s just about emotions, the light side, the dark side, all forms of it. If you’re not interested in the mushygushy side of life, I suggest you vacate the premises while you’re still safe! :p
Some entries were written at the time they were published. Some were written long, long ago. Some are original versions, some are edited, some are excerpts. Some are real. Some are fiction. All are inspired by true events (like my imagination, which is very much true, did you see what I did there).
I create whatever may arise from my mind. I like to capture everything, like fireflies in a jar. This is a collection, a scrapbook, a time capsule.
This is not simply the present moment. It is every person I’ve ever been and will be, the lines start to become fuzzy when we think in terms of metaphysics (or at least I do).
I heavily weigh on the art of writing (and everything else) opposed to the way the message is being received. My reality most likely doesn’t match yours. It’s all subjective what this may mean to you, if it does at all.. I am not preoccupied with what constitutes a “good” writer. I wouldn’t call myself a writer or anything of that sort – that starts to place me on pedestals with high expectations. I am just expressive.
Welcome to my side of the world!
i’m lucie. i am a little bit of everything, and i am a lot of nothing. i am in-between and i am just focused on being alive, truly alive. i’m on a never-ending journey of discovery. i am terrible with words. i have no hobbies except for the fact that i am interested in absolutely everything. i’ve wanted to be many things. i want to be a fashion designer and i want to be a chef. i like interior design and i like photography. i like quotes because they can describe how i feel. when i was little, i wanted to be a dancer or a gymnast. the only thing i like more than art is superman. the only things i am good at are giving hugs and having an array of facial expressions at my disposal. i don’t understand much. everything in the world is too mysterious beyond my understanding. life and all of its components are much too hypnotizing, but it’s all so, so beautiful. i want to be able to hold the whole world in my hands while i twirl in a little pink dress and laugh like i’m seeing the world for the first time.
to express, not impress. to be interested in the world, not interesting to others. to rediscover an old hobby. to find purpose. to waste time and enjoy time. to sing at the top of your lungs. to live outside your comfort zone. to stop feeling anxious. to be vulnerable. to give many chances, to yourself, to others, to life. to never succumb to images. to never assume. to live in simplicity. to ponder. to cherish. to absorb yourself in what is strange instead of common. to be silly. to know, and to be naive. to never be governed by others. to remember. to see the world from someone else’s perspective. to love, and, if you’re lucky, possibly be loved in return. to be selfless. to seek change in yourself, not others. to never thrive for perfection, but self-actualization. to sleep more, sleep less. to move faster, to slow down. to expand. to feel. to live. to be free.
