Hi - my name is Sara! I'm a teacher librarian in higher education who talks about things like digital deep reading, information seeking behaviors, and metadata on the reg. My wonderful partner and I have two loveable fur babies - Miss Madi (dog) and Mister Vík (cat, pronounced Veek) - that keep us entertained.
When I'm not teaching or dangling things in front of my cat, I'm usually reading or creating something with my hands. I bake, watercolor, bullet journal, take (way too many) photos, draw, scrapbook, and crochet, pulling inspiration from the books I read, the music I listen to, and the places I explore. Am I a master at any of these things? Definitely not! But they make me extremely happy. So I'm starting this blog as a way to capture my creativity and share it with other likeminded humans.
Hello, likeminded human! I'm glad you're here. 😊
Welcome to Bound in Stardust, a creativity blog about books, bullet journaling, and art.
Why Bound in Stardust? Well, "we're made of star stuff" (Sagan, 1980).
Bound (verb): to run with leaping strides ✨
Stardust (noun): a magical or charismatic quality or feeling; cosmic refractory dust grains ✨
Bounding in (or through) stardust is how I imagine creativity flows within us ✨
“The surface of the Earth is the shore of the cosmic ocean. On this shore, we've learned most of what we know. Recently, we've waded a little way out, maybe ankle-deep, and the water seems inviting. Some part of our being knows this is where we came from. We long to return, and we can, because the cosmos is also within us. We're made of star stuff. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself.”
