My name is Lara. I'm a writer + sometime creator. I call myself a Professional over-thinker.
I'm interested lots of things, but the connecting theme is exploring what we could achieve if we searched for the best possible solution instead of the easiest.
Right now, I'm looking at systems, ethics/economics, authenticity, and what it is to live a good life.
I'm about ::
Wellness - mental, physical, emotional and collective.
Quality - provenance, beautiful things from long ago, clever design.
New ideas - the arts, reading, travel, going against the flow.
I am :: a perpetual student, a bike rider, yogi, a fledgling farmer and very impatient.
I'm also Comms Manager at The Centre for Sustainability Leadership.
Thanks for stopping by. You can find out more about me through the links below.

If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don’t write, because our culture has no use for it.
The role of a writer is not to say what we all can say, but what we are unable to say."
"As humans, we waste the shit out of our words. It’s sad. We use words like “awesome” and “wonderful” like they’re candy. It was awesome? Really? It inspired awe? It was wonderful? Are you serious? It was full of wonder? You use the word “amazing” to describe a goddamn sandwich at Wendy’s. What’s going to happen on your wedding day, or when your first child is born? How will you describe it? You already wasted “amazing” on a fucking sandwich."
reluctant to take advice on hyperbolic language from someone who just described a sandwich as damned by God(via nocrimeinthewasteland) Interesting. I’m inclined to agree. But I also speak in hyperbole a great deal. What can I say, I’m an enthusiastic person!

The problem is how to
remain an artist once
we grow up."
