It is 4 o’clock in the morning and I’m sitting on a porch at some dude ranch called Love Valley.

It is a two – day get-away my wife insisted we take and, as usual, she was right. It is so quiet and beautiful I begin the day by trying to elicit the most perfect prayer to our Lord.

I’ve just finished reviewing the first 50 stories of the book Samantha, our editor and my dear friend, and I are trying to put together. I’ve convinced Elaine, my wife, to take a few more thousand dollars from our savings to purchase the first few hundred books, or let’s say to have them printed. Hopefully, they’ll do well enough that I could convince some publisher to take it on. As I told the Boss just a little while ago, “I’ll do my best; the rest is in Your Hands.”
