Thank you for giving me the journal I look at every time I go into a B&N, but have never bought for myself because it seemed like a gift to give! And most of all, the "It's going to be OK..." quote on the card made me tear up. I needed that. Thank you, my friend, for an excellent NaNo Prep kit.

Comment: What a beautiful outpouring of your thoughts. Your feelings echo my own sentiments as a teacher and a parent of a non-college-bound child. Society puts great pressure on young people to have everything figured out after high school. I think giving him that space is the best thing to do, but I know it is hard to be that shield for between what he is "supposed to do" and what he needs for himself. I wish you strength as you become "a real parent."

Comment: Wow! Thank you for this impressive story. You've weaved the cubes/words in so subtly and beautifully. I was caught up in this story to the extent that I was hoping for more ... don't you want to turn it into a book? (and by the way, the cube with the netted butterfly - now free - also entered!)
Response: Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it. I really think Evangeline's stories might be my next NaNo novel.

Same daughter asked if she can have it as a napkin in her lunchbox tomorrow. And the cotton thread! Thank you very much! I think I had better make some more cotton thread dishcloths now... :)
