Welcome, sea star.
Hello there, I’m Sui.
Lover, writer, artist, and friendly neighborhood anti-heroine, at your service. I create for open hearts. I write to connect, heal, and inspire. I live in a city surrounded by water, and my name is pronounced sway. Fare thee well today?
Enjoy my work?
Please consider leaving a tip.
Thank you so much!
“your pictures, your poetry (even your prose has an air of poetry), your whole blog is just so beautiful. seeing the world through your eyes and mind is always calming, and often thought-provoking. i’m transported to a world of dreams, ordinary, imperfect, not ideals just whispers of memory. shadows and colors bring out the vision, while observation and reflection create tone and meaning. your writing is terse but very open. i guess what i’m saying is, thank you for being here on tumblr.”

“If there’s one thing I’ve discovered about life, it’s that there are no straight lines. And although I’m sure we’d all like to re-write some of the disappointments and skip a lot of the trauma, these experiences certainly serve to shape who we are and what we become.
I’m still figuring out my life story, and I love reading about yours. I’ve been a fan since your cynosure days, and have previously subscribed to your 30 days of Love letter. I also own Gratia, Nourish Yourself, What Loving Yourself Really Means, and several other books. I’m grateful you’ve kept me on the list, and look forward to seeing your life adventures unfold.”

“You have such an ability to evoke beauty out of pain, without hiding the pain or making it seem less than it is.”

“Your letter lifted my heart. Thank you.
The work on your website is very human. And by that I mean it is honest and humble. It grabs me.”
