Welcome to the inner corners of my mind, also known as my blog. Here is the wonderful about page *note sarcasm* where you shall find out little to nothing about me since I wish to keep myself as anonymous as possible. This is basically because I want to be able to write about anything and everything without wondering “Oh dear is so and so going to see this? What will they think?” and then end up in a cycle of worry and worry and more worry.

So firstly let us address the elephant in the room, what does Sono Komorebi actually mean? Well, glad you asked. It originates from Japanese and is an untranslatable word, but its basic meaning is the effect of sunlight streaming through the leaves of trees. At the beginning, I was just looking at a top ten for unusually pretty foreign words, found Sono Komorebi and fell in love with it.

One of the main reasons for why I started this blog was because I have always found a comfort in writing, from an early age I kept a journal and was writing little stories of my own, a bit like Briony from Atonement, but stories instead of plays. I think that is also why I chose to do English at A-level (baccalaureate stage) since I could read all the time, another of my hobbies, and spend time analysing the texts and writing essays (nerdy I know). I treat it also as an escapism, writing, and that’s why I also chose to remain anonymous, to escape from reality.

If you didn’t already know, I have had this blog for over a year, started it up in December of 2016. I was posting, not on a regular basis, but from time to time, but it felt like a chore. So that is when I decided to revamp the whole look and content of this blog where I am hoping to post everything and anything, and if I am honest, if I don’t attract an audience that is fine with me, I write because I enjoy it, not to have some sort of validation from strangers who I may not even meet in real life.

So there you have it: an attempt at an About Page. If you want to find out more through my actual posts, hit the ‘BLOG’ tab at the top of the page. I post at least once a week, so be there or be square!
