Hello. I’m Lotus.

I like life, art, and music in equal proportions.
Which is to say a lot. I’m a happy person.

You may have seen me around? Or not.
I frolic.

I am not wise nor do I pretend to be.
If I know something odd
it is probably because I’ve read it in a book.

I draw to stay awake
and because it keeps my heart beating
and when that doesn’t work
I drink green tea and eat cinnamon altoids.

I want to write for the living.
I think love transcends sex and gender.
Last year I learned a lot of unfortunate things
about myself and my situation.
I'm determined to live through it.

I’d interpret dreams if I remembered them.
I tell ghost stories.
I adore seashells.

I have a secret library card that no one else knows about.
Last summer I fell in love and I haven’t quite gotten over it.

I have walked a thousand miles.

I think that most everything is beautiful.
And that which isn’t doesn’t want to be.

Simple gifts make me happy.
Complex conversations make me happy, too.

Very pleased to meet. ♥
