northsea (est. 2005) is my journal project; the happy culmination of a decade-plus of public or semi-public journalling, spread over many services, usernames and selves. it now lives here on dreamwidth. i needed somewhere new.

i am a girl with a full heart and a quiet voice, nestled deep into her late 20s, living with a boy and a cat in north-west england. i write, think, make art (especially artists' books), knit obsessively and sew timidly. i couldn't live without books, silence, music, good food, the out-of-doors, liminal states/spaces, languages, deciduous trees, rain and happy contradictions. i drink a lot of tea and like drawing umbrellas. i am principled & political and do my best to live ethically & responsibly. travelling is important to me. i love living in northern europe and am drawn to/obsessed by northerly places. one of my favourite things to do is to lie in bed at night and listen to the shipping forecast on bbc radio 4, and pretend that i am at sea. (the name of this journal, & its sub-titles, come from that.) { here is a youtube link featuring the shipping forecast, for those of you abroad. }

love, light and beauty are really all there is.

it is very nice to meet you.
