Unpacking boxes and found a copy of my book. To my surprise – considering how enlightened I think I am – even though 8 years have passed, I’m still disappointed that the publisher finalized the cover & title of the book without me. It is what it is.
The book is forever in the Library of Congress and is sold on Amazon, Goodreads and Barnes & Noble, to name a few. It’s been reviewed by some happy people, who encouraged me to keep gluing, while others posted some really mean reviews that at first made me very sad, then mad and then finally really bad for the people who wrote them.
As I flipped through the book, I could still feel the love, gratitude and courage that went into this artistic challenge … a choice I made knowing that it would expose my creative soul to a universe that I try to keep small.
Overall, I give the book a B+ … which was always acceptable in my world, especially in math. The book is good, not great but I finished it and survived everything that came along with it like … the realization that I’m good enough, I’m smart enough and gosh darn it 1/4 of the people like me.
A job well-done.
