The Point, Really…

A lot of reviews have been coming in for Holding Breath on Amazon and  I get as excited as a child every time I see that a new one has been posted, but the ones that make me the happiest are the ones (and there are quite a few) that say that the reader feels as if he or she has gotten to “know” David through reading the book, had begun to think of him as a friend, and even, in a couple of cases, had started to fall in love with him (yup–been there, done that 🙂 ).  Writing the book, I’d been kind of worried that no one would be able to see the sweetness in him as I had, no matter what I wrote.  But people are seeing it, and reading about their reactions to my portrayal of him (I’m really not all that concerned about what people think of me–it’s David’s book) has made me cry more than once.  I’m so grateful.  And I know that it would make him happy (it would also no doubt make him laugh to see his face plastered all over the Internet, if he’d known at the time what the Internet would be).

I wanted to post another song from the book’s playlist to go with this post, and for some reason The National’s song “Bloodbuzz Ohio” seemed the most appropriate (although I couldn’t tell you why, exactly, except that something about it just reminds me so much of David).  It’s a great song, although I find the video a little baffling because it’s so different from the “video” that runs in my head when I hear the song.  Here it is:

    Awesome Nancy! And as I have told you in the past, I cried with you, for you and for David. And yes, I did feel as if I had gotten to know him and his last few months here on Earth in which I believe, you made better for him. xoxo
