“There’s a line by the Italian writer Carlo Levi that I think is apt here: “The future has an ancient heart.” I love it because it expresses with such grace and economy what is certainly true—that who we become is born of who we most primitively are; that we both know and cannot possibly know what it is we’ve yet to make manifest in our lives.” - Cheryl Strayed, Tiny Beautiful Things
This excerpt is from my favourite book (my personal bible, tbh) and I suggest you read it because it is a true gift (link in bio). I can’t tell you how often I’ve read it throughout the years when I have felt lost in my creative process and purpose. The journey to manifest our dreams and visions are often long, convoluted, and uncertain but we know the beauty that lies inside of us, that the world should know and see.
was the thing I both knew and could not possibly know I would manifest into my life and into the world. When I trace back my steps to where I am today, it all makes so much sense.

And if you asked me back then if I ever thought my work would be published in a bookstore, I would have laughed at the audacity of the suggestion but also secretly yearned for exactly that

I’m filled with humble joy and disbelief. I’m not done yet though! I want this magazine to be available throughout Canada and it is my intention for this year. I have more clarity on my ambitions, but I know there’s still that long and convoluted road ahead. But today, I celebrate these massive wins for a little wannabe writer and editor that could! ☺️💕
The future has an ancient heart and who I am becoming is who I most primitively am.
