Maybe that seems glib, but I don't mean it to be glib. I'm tired of the world and everything that goes on in it. So, I locked myself in an office about 20 years ago and I rarely come out.
Sometimes I pop up and share good news.
Today is one of those days.
✭ GLORY GOT A STARRED REVIEW FROM KIRKUS! ✭
Since I mentioned V-Day earlier and we're here now, right under that line about inspiring a new wave of activists, I just want to say: Activism saves my life. Every time I am involved with making the lives of others better--even in a small way--I feel okay about leaving my office.
I don't care if it's a local basketball club or a library board or running a swimming pool or teaching adults how to read or being part of the Vagina Monologues or if it's simply retweeting a powerful message from a group that saves lives. The more we talk about the truth and what it really means, the better the world will get. The more we get involved in making the world better, the more good will come from our world.
For now, I'm back in my office. I'm nearly finished with all edits on that secret 2015 book. You will hear about it soon, I promise. And the 2016 book is sharping up nicely. I think.
Thank you for sharing my good news with me.
It's nice to have friends like you.
