Hi. Welcome to my small space.
I’m Cara. I was born on an ordinary day in June, and I think it may have been raining at the time. Words tend to spill from my fingers at the most unexpected circumstances, and most of the time, they end up on table napkins in cafes, ripped sheets of paper, or on my arms and wrists. Sometimes they end up on this blog.
I’ve always been stuck in a mess of in-betweens: loving ocean waves, hating its depths. It seems lately, all I ever do is change my mind.
I grew up in Manila, Philippines, but two years ago, I moved to the beautiful island of Oahu, Hawaii and lived on my own. It still feels surreal. I’m currently based in Washington DC, USA, where I’m studying French, Economics and Social Studies.
My hope for this space is for it to become a full reflection of my thoughts, my passion for writing poetry, prose, and fiction, and my interest in arts, literature, and culture.
This blog is basically a spectrum of beautiful things I love, found, and created. I wanted to form a constellation that would serve as a home or a warm cup of coffee and sweater hug on down days.
I hope these stories would inspire, comfort, and take you places.
