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.
And if you want to contribute to The Original Journal Project:
Send in your original thought to firstname.lastname@example.org (please handwrite it — you can write it on a napkin (we love N.J.S.Napkin Journal Signatures), in a journal and take a photo of it, or be creative…there are no rules after all.
Will you sign the journal? Journal Your Journey…
There’s 3 rules: 1. There’s a Front Door (Rated PG-13) 2. There’s a Back Door (Not Yet Rated) 3. There’s no rules.
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.
