Celebration Tinged With Sadness
I don't know what happened yesterday. I posted in the morning about Amber being published in Art Journaling magazine. Then I wanted to save a post for today but ended up posting it instead, which I didn't realize until today.
Thanks for your comments and joy in my celebration. Here's a picture of my son, my sister and I standing outside of Borders with our bags, containing the magazine. We were so excited!
Even though I am still celebrating, today I am saddened by the news that Borders may be closing all their stores. Borders is a highlight for me because I visit there every time we venture downstate. It's the closest large bookstore we have. The electronic book has made it's mark, I'm afraid. Somehow ordering online is not the same as standing there, holding a book, leafing through a magazine and seeing what other people are buying.
If you missed my post about Art Journaling, check out yesterday's first post :)
