When I was in college and had dreams of becoming a writer, I reached out to one of my favorite poets, Palestinian American Naomi Shihab Nye. “I believe we live in the same town,” I told her. “ Would you be willing to have coffee with me?” I was elated when said yes, and I was even more thrilled when we sat together. I thought she might say the road is too hard, or too risky, or too unpredictable. Instead, she told me I should do it. And that was just the push I needed.
Great read! & Congratulations on the new book :)
I loved this and I cannot wait to get my hands on The Light We Give!
