"You don't like the unknown, Diana, but sometimes you've got to embrace it. You were terrified when I put you on a tricycle the first time. And you threw your blocks at the wall when you couldn't get them all to fit back into their box. We made it through those crises. I'm sure we can handle this." My father held his hand out.
"But it's so...?
"Messy? So is life."

 Stephen to Diana, Shadow of Night

Happy October!

Just laying out my Bullet Journal for the month and playing with my @carpediemplanners seasons stickers and the monthly stickers from @everchangingplans.

I love the beginning of a month and playing like a little kid!  🖍✂️📖

Hello peeps. Here is that reference image for Goody Alsop’s hat. Portrait of Joan Popley. PS it’s worth expanding the picture and reading the caption. Joan Popley was awesome!
The brilliant ALL SOULS CON is coming to you starting this weekend and continuing for the two weekends after that. There are so many amazing panels, it  will be a little like getting a college degree in the #AllSoulsSeries.  There's still time to buy your ticket  and the schedule is up --you can see it here.  (All sessions are pre-recorded and are available on demand.  They have no expiration dates, so you can watch  the sessions as they air or download them later to watch at your own pace!)

Question from a Reader on Twitter, after they finished TIME'S CONVERT: I wonder if we will ever see Philip and Rebecca grow up?

Deb:  Oh I think you will.  #Book5 #Book6  #Book7 ... #amwriting
On #worldmentalhealthday, today and every day be kind to your mind. Feed it with faith. Feed it with truth. Feed it with love. Give it a break from relentless doom scrolling. Limit social media. Meditate. Breathe. And if you need help please reach out to someone you trust or a health care professional. Asking for help is not a sign of weakness. It is a sign of strength. ♥️
OMG. This song.
