On April 29th, the community I know to step up and support creative endeavors appeared in my life once again. I was overwhelmed with visitors, compliments and book sales. It was incredibly humbling and gave me the boost I needed after many weeks of frantic preparations.
(My back will be sore for the rest of my life, probably. Boxes and bins of books are heavy, and standing all the time is hard work. But it’s like pregnancy. You carry that baby around on your front and it gets really fatiguing and then it’s totally worth it.)
This is my dear friend, Jean.
Thank you, to each and every one of you. Those who stopped in to take a look around, and to those who I know are cheering me on even if you could not make it on the 29th.
Let’s do this!
