Perchè sono troppo viva, troppo traboccante per vivere “tra parentesi”.
Ho battuto i piedi per la rabbia e ho pianto, poi mi sono impegnata a cercare un ruolo, un posto per me che richiedesse tutto quello che ho da dare. (Anaïs Nin)

The perfume scent in the air is what pulled me into the quaint Key West store. Inside, the music played quietly and the sunlight snuck in and kissed every inch of the beautifully displayed goods. A woman said hello from behind a hand-crafted countertop. As I walked around the store, enamored by everything in it, I felt a pull. “You make all of this?” I asked the woman...surprised by her humility.
We talked for a few moments (I purchased that perfume) and I left that store needing more...this woman’s eyes—her soul—spoke to me.
Upon some searching, I learned she’d recently hiked the #elcaminodesantiago, a 500-mile pilgrimage ending in northwestern Spain. I dreamed about what it’d be like to walk away from my life entirely, in search of answers to my biggest questions.
In talking about my itch to explore, my mom said over the phone to me, “Sarah—there’s no need to run away from your life in order to find what you’re looking for. It’s inside of you.” I reached out to the woman and asked her to make a piece of art for me. I told her to surprise me and send me the invoice.
When I opened the meticulously wrapped package, I found myself in tears. It was this piece. “I’m restless. Things are calling me away. My hair is being pulled by the stars again.” -Anais Nin

She couldn’t have picked a more beautiful phrase for me and my constant (sometimes frustrating) state of dreaming...searching...seeking.
Today, rather than wanting to leave it all behind for the Camino de Santiago, instead I view my life as its own pilgrimage.
I don’t have to leave my life to find what I’m looking for. It’s inside me. I just have to walk my own path.

Throw your dreams into space like a kite,
and you do not know what it will bring back,
a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.

I must be a mermaid, I have no fear of depths & a great fear of shallow living.

• Eroticism is one of the basic means of self-knowledge, as indispensable as poetry •

I feel a little like the moon who took possession of you for a moment and then returned your soul to you. You should not love me. One ought not to love the moon. If you come too near me, I will hurt you. #anaisnin 🙆🏼‍♀️
