Quote of the Day:
The greatest discovery of any generation is that a human

being can alter his life by altering his attitude.

This is going to be short, as I must get it out of my system before this mess of tears drowns me. Within a 48 hour period, I've had seemingly normal folks turn into fire breathing, self-esteem kidnapping dragons. I am on deadline this week. I have put a lifetime worth of work into this book and then some, over the last year and a half. Not that I expect instant praise or anything near that assumption, but to treat someone with complete and utter disdain and a lack of faith, is beyond me. Even a complete lack of response, at this point, is worse than a reply saying they don't want to be a part of the project. I did not work this hard to have it blow up in my face...this is for a book that in the long run can only help jazz. I am sorry that I even began this monstrous undertaking. No wonder there aren't others out there doing the same. It's crystal clear why jazz isn't doing so good. I'm not sure why this is happening nor do I know if I'll be able to recover my esteem or dignity after this is said and done.

Hang in there. Surely all will work out in the end.

Hang with it and hang in there! You'll eventually reap what you've sown. Anyway--

Honey the book will be great.
You are an awesome writer, and I for one can't wait for your book.

Love to review it once it comes out.
