HALFWAY THERE! Humbled and grateful. And thinking of you all.
To all of my supporters, your pledges have knocked me over the half-way mark and I'm only 2 days in out of 30! I didn't know this would be such a moving experience. I want you to understand how important your support is to me.
Writing is a solitary pursuit. Writers spend an indecent amount of time on their own, agonizing over the perfect word to turn a story while memoirists wrestle with not only words but the twists of memory; the good, the bad, and the lonely. I say this to tell you that you've not only given me money, you've given me company. You've elected me to be your personal storyteller of a time you are all intrigued by, a time you may very well have participated in. So you can bet I'm imagining you all here with me while I take this journey back to honor the place, and the time, in all it's raging glory.
Solitude is overrated. Thank you. I'm honored.
