The Script in My Box: A Journal of Forgiveness
Sherlene Stevens - 7/15/2015

Are you journaling? I have always loved to journal (diary, personal pocket calendar, etc.,), even as a young little girl growing up on Maryland's Eastern Shore. It was especially important to do so as I matured into a young adult.

"They may not answer your question, but you're thinking; you're being productive to decreasing or eliminating useless dysfunction."

Never Doubt Your Reason For Asking "Why"


The Script in My Box: A Journal of Forgivness is a straight-talk journal memoir about American family-life and culture, from a fine-art theme viewpoint.

Have you taken the time to organize personal life events, situations and achievements--your life's experiences box? I selected a cardboard-box image for my book's cover (with Tate Publishing) because I had to move so frequently after the separation and divorce actions from my high-school sweetheart, through no fault of my own. Such visual symbol is actually my emotional expression to the culture shock that I felt when having to pack up my belongings from one place to the next (i.e., the moving truck rentals, light items in strong black trash bags, and arranging heavy items to fit inside of labeled medium-brown cardboard boxes of various sizes).

A 'why' child will question while discovering self-interests. Ordinarily, beyond the normal social boundaries.

Do you know a 'why' child who has grown into an adult? After reading this encouraging memoir, you will. Meet Sherlene Stevens. Through her insightful and inspirational book, written in a journal format, Sherlene discusses her life while growing up, and her experiences with the negative behavior of society toward large families.

She is a native of Upper Eastern Shore of Maryland—a rural area with small-town ideologies that functions with a hierarchical attitude toward business organizations and people of large families. Such cultural dysfunctions reinforces the traditional methods of the social boundaries. Overall, you will read of Sherlene's many experiences through a portion of her life in which she dealt with such attitudes and beliefs.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
As noted in The Script in My Box: A Journal of Forgiveness (2012), I grew up in Kent County, Maryland. It is a county considered to be a part of Maryland's Upper Eastern Shore. Kent County's major city is Chestertown. The Knickname of the State of Maryland is "the Old Line State." My home-state is so convenient to areas of Delaware, Washington, D.C., N. Virignia, West Viriginia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and New York. Back in the day, my home-state gave away some of its land to be used for a new socialization center for American citizens. Today we considered it to be our Nation's government symbol ... Washington, D.C. or the District of Columbia.
