Life Changes by Deb Anna

Well, I haven’t gone off topic for a while and given that I’m leaving for New York in just a few hours and my usual pre-flight did-I-pack-right-will-my-cats-go-on-hunger-strikes-with-me-gone-and-what-if-I-get-strip-searched-at-the-airport level of anxiety making me draw a complete blank on the topic of wind, I figured I’d write a bit about the way my life has changed since my book came out. In short, it hasn’t. I don’t mean this to sound remotely…

Keeping My Feet on the Ground by Deb Mia

Bear with me now: I’m having a moment. An Earth, Wind and Fire moment, that is. Bars of “September” are running through my head, followed by “Got To Get You Into My Life” and “Boogie Wonderland.” And then “Let’s Groove” … ah, I’m having major flashbacks at the moment – you can almost smell the polyester. Which brings me to my point (yes, there is actually a point to this…

How does your garden grow? by Deb Jennifer

When we had our place in the woods, we had an amazing garden.  We took the ugliest part of our land – a flat area covered in logging slash, the clay lifeless and hopelessly compacted by heavy machinery, and turned it into paradise.  We planted cover crops, built raised beds full of rich compost.  We grew vegetables mostly: tomatoes, salad greens, sweet and hot peppers, garlic, basil, beans, peas, even…

The Smell of Summer by Deb Tish

For me, nothing evokes magical childhood summers like the smell of an old house, especially that of a smoker. My sister and I spent summers at our grandparents’ place.

These summers were delicious with danger. Every day began at the…

Let It Run All Over Me by Deb Kristy

Raised on the beach as I was meant that learning to swim was a priority. I barely remember learning, I just remember always knowing how to do it, as natural as breathing. The saltwater of the Gulf of Mexico buoyed me, and I felt safe there, at ease, at home. But just after my eleventh birthday, the freighter Summit Venture rammed the Sunshine Skyway bridge’s southbound span, collapsing the center…
