Celebrating My Husband's Accomplishment!
Congratulations to my husband today, his publisher sent him the first box of his book: Blowing Smoke--Rethinking the War on Drugs Without Prohibition and Rehab.
He worked so hard for five years, researching, writing, editing, and editing, and editing. I did a lot of reading and rereading of all those drafts since he covered so much material it was difficult, at first, for him to organize and find his own voice. But he went back to the drawing board again and again and again...more times than I've ever been able to, that's for sure. Which has taught me a valuable lesson: those who finish books are those who are modest enough to take criticism and suggestions and passionate enough to stick out all the revisions.
He's always been my biggest supporter in all my pursuits from horses to piano and whatever else I undertake. Today is my day to celebrate him!
Here's to my husband for following through with his ideas and fulfilling his vision! I'm very proud of him.
