Gardening, Not Architecture

The thrill of flight,
the fear of flying

There was nothing
I could do to save you
but to save myself

I was water, reflecting

I don’t know how deep
the well runs in my heart

Gardening, Not Architecture?

THIS IS

gardening, not architecture

Sarah Saturday, originally from a small town in rural Wisconsin, has made a name for herself in the music industry over the past decade with an intense dedication to the underground music scene. From her years in DIY bands in the punk scene in Wisconsin, to working in the offices and on the road with the Vans Warped Tour, to running her own marketing company in Los Angeles, and then finally returning to music full-time in 2009, she has remained committed to her personal “earn it yourself” philosophy, which promotes the virtues of creativity, honesty, cooperation, humility, resoluteness, and integrity.
