Putting It In Perspective

Some days you get mail saying you suck. Some days you get letters saying you have a horrible author photo and use too many dashes (--) in your sentences. And then you get a letter like this:

"For some time now, I have been meaning to get in contact with you... My family and I were stranded for 5 days in New Orleans after Katrina's aftermath. As the city flooded around us, I was able to entertain myself by reading your book... When we were rescued by boat, we were told that we couldn't bring any belongs with us. I tore out the last few chapters of the book and was able to finish the book as I waited to be rescued by army helicopter." - Michelle


Okay, not to get all Casey Kasem, but if I had a radio show, the long distance dedication would go to you, Michelle. And it would be an awesome song too -- not some pop-nonsense that would be forgotten a few weeks later.

Thanks for putting it in perspective.
