One of the quotes you can see above in the cover photo, "I don't think simplicity is real" is something I strongly believe. Though we can say something is simple, there is always another thing that happens. Nothing can actually happen on it's own. Writing this post could be a simple thing, but it isn't. I have to think of the words and I had to find the inspiration to write it first. If simplicity was real, then maybe I'd love it. Then again, I kind of love the maze of thinking. Having my mind running leads to so many things. Then those things lead to other things and then it leads to even more. Everything somehow contributes to another thing, even if it's in the smallest way possible. Maybe simplicity is real, but sometimes it just doesn't seem plausible. I love my life, no matter how complicated it may be. Life is life, maybe that's a simple thing...
My name is Elaina Swanson, I'm 16 and I was born and raised in Boise, ID. Words are my escape, whether they are in a book, lyrics of a song, quotes on a sticky note, or a poem that I've written. If I have words my imagination can run wild and I can escape the real world, even if it's just for a little bit.
