I finally had access to my mailbox today. Your masterpiece was waiting for me. I needed it. I have been cold for months now; avoiding emotions, running away from hurt, fleeing pain. I was enraptured by your book all day. No time for classes. No time for Secured Transactions, Professional Responsibility, or Constitutional Law II. It was my time–for life. I was in tears. No, the book does not start off sad, but I knew the ending–not how it happened but that it happened.
Thank you for writing and sharing pieces of your heart, your soul, your mind, your adventures, your past, your fears, and your hopes. I needed it.
