so easy to look at, so hard to define

so i play music, that's what i do.
when i sing, i lose myself.
there's nothing more i'd rather do.
lord know i've tried everything else.

i'm sara. i'm here because i like to write and share my life with really great people. i am not here because i feel the need to fill some void in my life. my life is full and makes me insanely happy most of the time. recent events have led me to be very picky about who i let in here. it's sad, but that's the way it's got to be sometimes.

i'm the music teacher you wish you had in elementary school. i love going on adventures and i'll drive anywhere you want to go. i'm just learning how to plant things and often daydream about years ahead when i'll have my own garden, compost heap and CLOTHES LINE. i try to live as green a life as i can. i was raised by an amazing single mother who taught me to respect people, animals and the earth. i've been recycling all my life and have serious issues with people who don't do it.

currently, i'm working on eating better, exercising more and smoking less. it's more about FEELING good than LOOKING good.
