Lit.Life.

Lit. Life; a life immersed in written works, printed matter, literature.

Lit life; to live illuminated like a flame, intoxicated, ignited.

Lit. Life is about words that ignite inner vision. It’s about Wordsmiths painting pictures without brushes, sparking flames and planting seeds. Cultivating images only available to the mind's eye. It’s about words that perform alchemy, conjuring images like lived experiences to connect emotions untouchable by any other medium, media, or physical matter.

Lit. Life is about lighting up the darkness; being intoxicated and intoxicating. It’s about seeing and being seen. There’s something to be said. There’s something to be felt.
