Hello, my name’s Kari. I am from Seattle, thus the blog title.
I aspire to look at everything with an artist’s eye.
Some of my interests are psychology and neuroscience, hiking, backpacking, social justice, animals, children, sustainability, cooking, baking, reading, and writing. I am often quiet and mellow. Much of the inspiration for my writing comes from the outdoors, the intricate inner life in my head, and people I admire or simply take note of as they walk by.
I have suffered from depression, anxiety and panic attacks, and anorexia. Though I am in a good place now and continuously grow stronger, I carry each of these struggles with me daily and they will forever impact my identity. These themes often appear in my writing.
If you feel so inclined, take a moment to say hello. I love making new friends!
