poetry + essays + variations on the truth


Wandering with wonder, challenging the known, engaging in expectant curiosity, living with hands open, light enough to see the humor and long enough to see some change.

Oh, Hi there.
I'm Natalie


I'm terrible at bios and so mine goes like this. I like words and sentences and paragraphs and sentiments and ideas and sounds and poetry and stories and thoughts and you. I realized at some point that I could either write my way out, create fluently and bigly, or die trying. I'm probably doing both.
