The War Between My Head and My Heart
I was on my way to Egmont with my daughter, Holly Ann. I brought eight copies of my book, Etched In My Memory with me, because every time I go out, I meet someone who wants to buy a copy. When we were nearing Madeira Park, Holly Ann said, “Mother, you should stop and put a few books in the bookstore there.” Justin does that I told her. I thought about it for a moment and decided that I had to get over this shyness, bashfulness or whatever it is. I know I am doing exactly what the Creator and my Ancestors’ directed me to do – so, why should I feel awkward or unworthy? Answer: I don’t.
Long story short- we stopped at the Lagoon Society’s EarthFair Store, I jumped out of the car with a copy of Etched In My Memory in one hand and my clipboard in the other. I immediately ran into an attractive tall woman, who said, “You’re Barb Higgins.” I admitted that I was, and in-no-time-flat, there were about five women there greeting me. I was, as usual, surprised at those turn of events. Ms. Jackson, the proprietress of the store was most congenial. I left her with seven copies of my book, as that was all I had with me.
