The End Is Just The Beginning (Day 295)

The End.

My friend shared with us tonight that she typed out those words at the bottom of her manuscript.

Her teenaged son said that when you read a book, you don’t see those words at the end of the book. She pointed out that she didn’t give a damn about that. Putting those words down, at the end of a manuscript you’ve been working on for a long time is huge. And vital.

I know. And I am so proud and pleased for my friend.

I don’t feel like I can share much about her book today except to say that it is a memoir and a poignant story that came out of her extremely unique 9/11 experience. And it is heart wrenching and heart warming and thoroughly fascinating.

In time, I will tell more.

But for now, rejoice with me and her in those words that mark the end of a long journey, and which lead her down the path to the beginning of a new one.
