Hi, my name’s Kari.
I am from Seattle– thus the blog title.
Rural, mountainous CO is now where I call home.
I enjoy writing poetry and prose, as well as photography, drawing, and painting.
Some of my other interests are psychology and neuroscience, hiking, backpacking, running, social justice, animals, children, sustainability, cooking, and baking. Much of the inspiration for my writing comes from the outdoors or the intricate inner life in my head.
I have dealt with depression, anxiety and panic attacks, and anorexia nervosa in my life. I am also currently working as a mental health professional. I carry these struggles with me daily and they have shaped my identity. These themes often appear in my writing.
If you feel so inclined, take a moment to say hello!
