Today is the day and all I can hear is the voice of Dr. Seuss ringing through my head:
Today is your day!
You're off to Great Places!
You're off and away!
Today I'm officially an author. My dream came true. Ever since I read Harriet the Spy as a kid, I wanted to be a writer, even though I fought Mr. Ricco in 9th grade English when he forced us to write a paragraph a day. Today I send him blessings. Every time I look at this book with my name on it, I feel a sense of awe and peace and gratitude.
Last night we kicked off the book launch with a family dinner at Nighttown. My grandson's eyes grew big as the bread plates when he heard a blast of jazz coming from the other room. What a great reminder that every day is the day for something new, for something great.
Every today is the day.
