After having recently celebrated my birthday, one of the myriad goals I set for myself was to start my own blog. I feel that starting my own blog is like embarking on a sort of adventure. And I like what the lark represents: an escapade, happiness, morning, song, potential. In literature, the lark is commonly portrayed as the herald of the morning; many an ode exists extolling the virtues of this merry little bird. Furthermore, I don't want to take this blog too seriously and will instead have fun with this space and use it as an opportunity to play and muse on life's little pleasures.
