Sometimes New York, sometimes Florida
English student, music teacher, newspaper and literary magazine editor, writer and photographer - Windswept swirls of ink and giddy phrases spill from me - Thank you for reading! My name is Faren, and I live in too-sunny South Florida. I'm a pre-med student turned English student, and I dabble in tons of art forms and genres of writing, obsess over literature and nothing makes me happier than the clicking sound of a camera's lens or the end of a perfectly crafted sentence. Books, books, books, make me happy. Whatever I'm doing, I'd rather be reading or writing. A bit of nerd at heart. I'm also a violin teacher to a lovely group of kids, and I dream of moving to a big city where writing, music, art and good food can comprise my life everyday. I adore anything reminiscent of a time past; sometimes I feel like an old soul just waking up in the wrong body. I also have an affinity for all things Eastern: food, languages, culture, philosophy, religion... I'm an Indian girl who loves America to the depths of her soul, but never forgets where she is from. I'm here to share all of these things, the things I create, the things I love and the things that inspire me, with you.
Interests: Finding meaning where there usually isn't.

Your name in lights And gentle vibration "hey, hey I'm here" "i live in your pocket, your hand, your head" Steady blinking Waiting for a word from me Persistent, you are Impatient, and rightfully so But it's just low key love, babe The light's nudge is brighter In the dark,... Continue reading

If this is to end in fire, then let me swallow these last words. Two bodies, four hands to strike the match, two proud trees already up in flames and these last words, "I wish" "That day" "If only" "We might" - just sparks on the withered branch already the... Continue reading
