Does Grace Have an Expiration Date?

Dear Summer, It’s Been Nice but…

Salty Brine Beach, Rhode Island

Salty Brine Beach, Rhode Island

Dear Summer,

It’s been nice having you here,  but I think it’s time we had a chat. You have been amazing, and I appreciate you making sure that our little tourist town made some money this season. Not that we are in need, but let’s just say a “green” Summer makes for pleasant Townies. This humidity thing, though…I never have liked. I like it less now that I am almost one year over the half century mark. However the garden is appreciating it, and I the succulent Tomatoes it generously offers.

Shall I pour you an Iced coffee, or hot? Not sure how you do the ice-cube thing.

When the Voice in your Head is a Liar

I looked at the spiral bound notebook sitting open on her desk and read the words she had written for her eyes alone to see.  I recognized and resonated with each statement she had written and circled, as if each one held its own place of prominence in her mind. Yet as I looked at her, I knew we were different. I couldn’t put my finger on it until years later. Was it that I was cooler? No way, I shuffled the halls of high school feeling like the misfit I still am. I was not cool enough for the popular kids nor nerdy enough for the smart kids. This of course left me with few alternatives. I could remain a misfit through high school, quit school altogether or hang out with the other misfits on the fringe. Actually I did all three, but that is a story for another day.

Random Journal Day #53 with Debbie Anne Parent

PicForDawn

Welcome to our August edition of Random Journal Day! Summer continues to shine as does our Featured Journal Keeper this month, Debbie-Anne Parent of Ephemera’s Vintage Garden. Debbie is not only a journal keeper but also a journal creator and digital artist. She designs downloadable, printable journals and beautiful paper embellishments for diaries, journals, scrapbooks and collage. Debbie also creates one of a kind altered books for journal lovers from around the world and if that was not enough, she shares tutorials and freebies regularly with her followers. As one who is fairly new to her I felt compelled to ask her a million questions…however for the sake of her sanity and a reasonable blog post, I narrowed it down to the interview you see here today!
