Thank you, Miguel

I often told my college students, “If you want to feel life, get out of your comfort zone. It is scary, but the rewards are worth every nervous moment.”

During one of my last classes before leaving the working world, Miguel handed me his exam and said, “Now it’s your turn, Spittle. Go for it!”

A year and a half after I began writing, I sat at my desk with a stack of drafts. Soon I would hit the “publish” button and my world would change forever. Scary? You bet. Worth it? No doubt.

Thank you, Miguel.
