I'll let you in on a secret.
I hate "About Me's". Who has time to write a mini essay about yourself? And who has time to read all that? Not me. But yet, here I am, writing you all an About Me, so that you have an idea of what you're getting yourself into.
I'm a dreamer, I'm a creator I'm a tea drinker. I'm a reader, I'm a writer, I'm a laugher. I'm not a singer, and I'm not a poet. I'm a believer.
My favorite thing is to go where I've never been. I wish to journey everywhere, and document my experiences here, on this blog- with photographs and writings. I wish to learn about all kinds of people and cultures, and I want to make friends all over the planet.
I'm in love-with books. I believe they are more than just words on paper. That once you've read one, it becomes a part of you. That these characters enter your subconscious and remain there forever. That people in real life can remind you of characters in these books. That maybe sometimes you can confuse books and reality. Crazy, isn't it? I like books that aren't just lovely but that have memories in themselves. Just like playing a song, picking up a book again that has memories can take you back to another place or another time.
I also love crazy words. Like brontide, right before a big storm. And afterwards, petrichor. Mm. Oh! And grapholagnia, especially at art museums. I don't understand some art museums. Ever been to the Smithsonian Museum of Modern Art? Don't go. Unless of course, you like that sort of thing. ;)
I'm Clare. I love to read everything, write as much as my mind allows, eat lovely foods, dance until I'm exhausted, pray, and take pictures of everything and everyone. I'm an aspiring photojournalist and I am in the process of developing my photography business. I'm experimenting with blogging, which is why I created The Wandering Elephant. You'll find pictures of everything in my life: pictures, crafts, some food recipes, and silly little posts. Feel free to give me a follow!
