Lately I’ve had opportunities to breathe. I know that sounds odd–I mean, we all have to breathe to survive. But rather than be on a hamster wheel, which was much of my 2018, I’ve been able to take care of my physical environment, my health as well as my loved ones’. Even though that I’m in the middle of a book launch, my events, aside from my compressed book tour in Northern California, are scheduled pretty far apart, with breathers practically every other week. Being a midlist author, I find it difficult to just breathe. I know that the pace will accelerate soon, but for now, I’ll enjoy and savor this moment.
