"In the end, I am the only one I can adore, and I am the only one who sees in my eyes the stars of the night, the flowers of the spring, the rains & tides of the watery world..."

Hello, my name is Faren.

mind { color: blue; } body { color: brown; } soul { color: infinite; }

This is my word garden.

I'm from wild Florida where it rains more than it shines. I'm a poet, photographer, nose-in-book kind of reader, plant lady, and lover of words & the earth.

I'm finding my place as a 21st century poet, defying the conventions of my skin and the effects of crowd & chaos that infringe on internal peace. I hope to leave behind a few words to help us appreciate the earth's natural beauty, celebrate the divine potential within, and find moments to ponder & love & cry.

I'm also obsessed with my name and its all-too relevant meaning (see below):


Faren {FARE-en}:

ORIGIN Celtic (Gaelic) Farran from Farachan, meaning "Descendant of Farachan", also Afghan Farrah, meaning "Glorified",

also Irish surname, Meaning "One who wanders (wanders, but is not lost)"


There are so many wild & wonderful things in this world, it justifies running around trying to love them all.

Thanks for wandering over to my blog.

Haha. No UV Filter. I actually did this video just to experiment with Adobe Premier's visual effects, and that "funny green ghosting" is actually the result of two layers of ghost filters. I thought it made for an interesting effect... But now that I've got the program all figured out, it's time for some serious film making. *rolling up sleeves*
And yeah. That song is the best thing I've heard in a while. Apparat is really great.


Is that you dancing? Haha, you got some moves! I wish I was able to dance so freely.

On a different not, did you shoot this with a UV filter? At night, sunset/rise, or when there are a lot of lights I'd advise against using it since they usually are not coated for anti-glare and cause that funny green ghosting.

Great song, btw. I'll have to add it to my playlist.
