Casara Clark

Dancer. Dreamer. Dark chocolate enthusiast.

Casara double majored in Radio/Television/Film and Psychology at Northwestern University. She’s certified in Search and Rescue by the city of San Francisco. And she’s also a web designer, film editor, and Notary Public. She can even whip out a balloon pump and make a teddy bear at the occasional child’s birthday party.

A late bloomer to dance, she revels in making herself an example of the age-old saying, “It’s never too late…” She has studied ballet for nearly 10 years, but she didn’t begin dancing on pointe until well into her 20s. Today, she has the feet to show for it… She firmly believes that it’s our scars that make us beautiful, so she loves her messed up feet.

You might catch her in a commercial or a film. Not to mention her writing endeavors!

The Blue Rose

Nothing is impossible.

Casara has loved the blue rose all her life and even has a tattoo of one on her ankle.

See, roses come in all colors. Each color has a corresponding meaning. Red for love. Yellow for friendship. Purple for passion. Since blue is the only color rose that cannot exist in nature, blue is considered the impossible one. Moreover, having a blue rose means attaining the impossible.

Literature around the blue rose goes back pretty far. One of the best old stories about the blue rose is this one:

The Folktale for the Blue Rose

The blue rose is a symbol of hope in yourself — the belief that you can achieve the impossible. This folktale gives such a realistic and simplistic example of using the symbol for good — using the symbol to circumvent obstacles that would normally be impossible to beat.
