Debbie, I have been reading your blog for a few weeks now and enjoyed your thoughts, but nothing moved me so than this entry on Elizabeth. I understand your doubts and fears about raising your children in the-forgive me-somewhat vagabond lifestyle you live, which I truly admire, but with souls like Elizabeth coming from it, you are doing a marvelous job and have nothing to worry about! Bravo! I am in awe of that young woman.


Wow, I can't believe the Jones kids are truly starting to become the Jones women and man.
How exciting and strange. You should be so proud and Elizabeth will have an amazing time.
Much love.


Debbie, I think that it is great that you have this tradition. I grew up in a family without traditions. But this idea of a rite of passage into Adulthood sounds amazing. We live in a culture which doesn't have a place for this transition, it is not recognised and I think this is why we have so many Boy-Men, and Girl-Women, Who haven't been led into adulthood, and so don't know how to be adults (I am talking from the point of a 27 year old who seems to be only just making this transition into womanhood myself)You are inspiring me to be a woman, I need all the help I can get!! You Rock, love Em x
