Proof Copy Arrived!

Remember how excited you got during the early days of AOL when you would sign-on and hear those three magic words... "You've Got Mail!"? Yeah, me too. I bet you couldn't wait to open it up and see who wrote you. Even when it was one of those silly chain letters your friends sent to everyone on their buddy list you thought it was the coolest thing. Then, one day it just became the norm. Now most people have multiple email addresses and they spend more time than they care to sifting through spam trying to find anything worth reading. 

These days, it's more exciting to open your mailbox and find something in there addressed to you. Real mail! Not bills. Not junk mail from random companies. Real mail. It's amazing how the roles of these two forms of mail have completely reversed. 

This past weekend I experienced that kind excitement. My wife walked in the house with the contents of the mail box in her arms and sure enough there was something in there for me. Something I was very excited about. Something I had been waiting for...

It was the proof copy of Defining Moments!

I have to admit - I was nervous as I opened the box. This was going to be the first time I ever held a physical copy of my work in my hands. I pulled the tab on the back of the package and there it was... 

My book! 


What a great feeling it was to hold my own book. I can't wait for it to be available for all of you on March 31.
