Hello! Thank you for stopping by! I assume that if you’re on the “about” page, you’d like to find out a bit more about this blog and about me, so let me see if I can satisfy your curiosity, at least in part….
“Scribo” means “I write” . No, I don’t speak Latin. It sounds snazzy to have Latin in my blog title, but I have to confess I looked up the translation in Google translate. And then, to be sure (because I don’t completely trust the thing) I looked it up in a Latin textbook we have. We got it some years ago when I ambitiously decided to learn Latin. I didn’t keep it up (as you have no doubt guessed) or I wouldn’t have needed to use Google translate…..
“A place for thoughts and words” – what’s that about?
I’d like this blog to be a place where I can improve how I think and how I write. A place to help me to think a little more deeply and to better express what I think. A place to help me to write more engagingly and more beautifully. And I’d like others to be able to enjoy and benefit from what I share.
As for me, I’m Sarah–a twenty-something who loves words well written and stories well told. A Christian who is, in the words of C. S. Lewis, “incomplete, preparatory, empty yet cluttered, crying out for Him who can untie things that are now knotted together and tie up things that are still dangling loose”. I write better than I live. But He hasn’t given up on me.
