"I Just Had to Publish It"
And, yes, I'm very glad he felt that way. Actually, I'm thrilled he felt that way.
I could probably think of a few more words to describe how I feel: excited, gratified, thankful, blessed, struck dumb, amazed, trying to keep myself from breaking out in gigantic smiles, acting goofy, teary-eyed, and humbled are a few that come to mind.
It's a scary thing for me to put on display for the world to see a part of me that's been private for almost a decade.
