https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTdPbSg0SlA This morning, I woke up exhausted--like I had just run the longest ultra-marathon of my life. In a way, I had. Today, the book finally came out! There were a few hiccups this morning with Amazon and Kindle, trivialities that got sorted after a few emails. For a second, I panicked and then just let it go. Honestly, what's the point when it's out of my control? I had to teach a class too, which took my mind off it for a while. Then I sent a few mails and took my bro Tim's advice, Don't Stress! I needed to be told that. Then I went grocery shopping with my wife. She'll tell you, I hate shopping. Impatient people bumping into each other and trolly-rage in every aisle. Sheesh! But today it was a joy and it was better than sitting at home all day refreshing Amazon stats and seeing how many people were sharing the links I had posted. It's really quite pathetic until I look at the response to the book so far. People of little or no faith are asking important questions that I am happy to try and answer. Those of deep faith tell me theirs just got deeper. How can I not want to push it in that case? I did drive my wife slightly crazy today and I must praise her patience over the past few days as my OCD tendencies were off the charts. What can I say? I'm a perfectionist.
Thanks for all the kind words today and eagerness to share the love. It truly astounds me and I am undeserving of such generousity. You have probably all seen the links, etc. so I won't bother reposting them here. This is just a quick note to say I am so thankful to be part of a community that cares about art, the truth, and each other. Deeply humbled.
