This is approximately the ten-year anniversary of my novel Cinco de Mayo. A book about a global, mind-altering event. I can say now, I pretty much nailed it. Pat on back. Pat. Not that it was too difficult. People are the same in their variety. Some people can adapt to change, some can’t. Some people can accept that the path ahead will not look like the one behind and turn and face backward. Others will keep moving forward even though they don’t have any idea what lies ahead. They know – we all should know – it will, at the very least, be novel.
