Hello, and nice to meet you!
My name is Savannah Murray, AKA BeachBumPoet.
I’m so stoked you’ve made your way to my blog!
I want to offer you a huge WELCOME, and a big THANK YOU for visiting.
Why Beach Bum?
Beach Bums are the quintessential mellow, laid-back lifestyle kinds of people. They hang out in the sand, drinking beers and kicking back. I am not that kind of beach bum. I am the beach bum who cannot go more than a day without getting in the ocean unless I’m forced to. I am a beach bum because I love the freedom of swimming in the saltwater. I am a beach bum because the lifestyle of stoke, joy, and positive energy is what I strive to emulate every day of my life.
I believe in the power of words. I believe that writing, as a creative outlet can be one of the most powerful tools out there for us to use. Plus, I’m a word nerd! Give me a dictionary, and I’ll be satisfied for hours-finding new words and definitions.
I believe that stories are a way to access each other’s hearts and spirits, to uplift each other, to share in each other’s love, heartache, sorrow, happiness, and every other beautiful emotion we can imagine. I believe that stories, writing, and poetry are vessels for personal growth and that we can empower ourselves beyond our wildest dreams through creative expression.
To me, this encompasses what I am all about: a beach lifestyle, surfing, wellness, positivity, and creativity, personal empowerment, story-telling, stoke, sand, and sun.
I believe that healing ourselves in the ocean and healing ourselves through poetry and writing are profoundly and deeply interconnected, that when united together they create something spectacular.
