I am getting nervous and excited. What a thing to let this go after so many years of dreaming, drafting, ego-squeezing submitting, editing, crafting and now finally, releasing. And all of it begotten by deep grief. The work of writing is what carried me into and through the grief in a way that sent me out healed. And here I am on the other side. I hope all my local people can make it to the party to help me celebrate this milestone of this journey.
