Welcome to the inked forest where stories grow on trees //
Who am I?
My name is Luana. My nickname is Lucy.
I’m a 28 year old introvert, podiatrist, perpetual reader and a faithful tea drinker. Just so you know, I like my tea strong without sugar.
I love books, as you can tell. I fell in love with the written word from the moment that I learnt to read, and I’ve never looked back. Nothing compares with the feeling of being transported into another world and escaping reality for a little while. Life unfortunately gets in the way.
In Walt Whitman’s words: “I contradict myself, I am large, I contain multitudes”. I live on an island in the Mediterranean and dream of travelling the world while also wishing to stay at home all day. If I could live anywhere else, it would be a hard choice between London, York or the setting of my last read book. I love crisp autumn nights, winter thunderstorms and the dappled light of the spring sunshine. I want to befriend all the dogs in the world. I wish that my dog could have lived forever. I love the sound of trees as they sway in the wind. I love the smell of brewed coffee, fresh baked bread and old books. I want to walk down the aisles of every bookstore, own a huge library and spend cold winter nights marathoning the Lord of the Rings films.
I am eternally accused of being too quiet. I talk too much with myself. Nostalgia destroys me while dreams sustain me.
Welcome to my blog. I hope you enjoy wandering around.
