I just wanted to take a moment to speak up for dreams. It’s been just over a month since my books came out. I spent the 8+ years prior to that working away at them but always wondering (doubting) if their publication would ever happen. If there’s something you’re yearning to do, create, or accomplish, keep at it! “Vivez, si m’en croyez n’attendez à demain: Cueillez dès aujourd’huy les roses de la vie.” (Pierre de Ronsard, from his second book of Sonnets pour Helene). Rough translation: Live now, don’t wait for tomorrow: Gather life’s roses today.
