Begin! (but get coffee first)

This post comes to you from the eccentric town of Carrboro, which neighbors college town, Chapil Hill. 

I (creator/curator of The Original Journal Project) met Jay Reeves, owner of Vinyl Perk last Friday. Carrboro is a fun and charming town that is home to eccentrics, artists, college students, and a great music scene. 

Jay was super fun and an instant friend. I love what he wrote in The Original Journal (Save the Earth edition). So without further ado…here’s his signature. 

 

 I ducked behind my Chemex Coffeemaker, and the next thing I knew she was snapping my picture through the glass carafe and my image came out distorted and coffee-crazed but I liked it. And so having given you my coffee photo-face I will say to Megan and all the wonderful creators from Wilson to Walla Walla: Begin! The rest is easy.

Strive To Be Happy

"Strive to be happy." - Dave Bianco

This is a NJS — a napkin journal signing. This napkin journal signing is from circa 1998-2000 when I lived in Redlands, California.  I had a huge crush on this signer; he had no interest in me romantically.  My best friend was friends with him. He is a good guy and shared good advice.

I almost always carry my journal with me, but when in need, there is always a napkin to be found that can serve as a last resort make-shift journal.

Journal Your Journey.
