“What I want is to open up. I want to know what’s inside me. I want everybody to open up. I’m like an imbecile with a can opener in his hand, wondering where to begin – to open up the earth. I know that underneath the mess everything is marvelous. I’m sure of it.” — Henry Miller
“There is no time for despair, no place for self-pity, no need for silence, no room for fear. We speak, we write, we do language. That is how civilizations heal.”
— Toni Morrison
“I am not interested in being original. I am interested in being true.”
— Agostinho da Silva
Hi, I’m Natalie – or at least that’s what my friends and family call me. To all others I’m known as “the girl who reads and writes obsessively like words are going out of style.” I am a 19-year-old poet and violinist who is also aspiring to be a novelist. I hope you find something here worth remembering.
