Our book is up and running, and I am following the lead of the late Steve Jobs in passionately spreading her message
Rainbows. Seven days ago, our book was officially launched at the Saltwater Farm Vineyard in Stonington, CT. Earlier that morning, while driving through a steady rain to retrieve my daughter Diana from Boston Logan, I remember thinking about finding positive in that gloomy weather. My answer was simply, "You gotta have rain if you're gonna have a rainbow." And as the kick-off time of 5:30 p.m. approached, it was beginning to look like we had all the makings for just that.
Along about 4:00 p.m., while setting up tables and stacking over 400 books with Michael Connery, our host for the evening, I jokingly asked him what he could do about ordering up a rainbow for our event.
But I wasn't really joking, I was actually envisioning what a nice touch it would be -- to have Mother Nature bless our event with one of her most glorious productions -- a colorful rainbow. And she did.
And not just one rainbow, but several -- I lost count at four. With an overall theme in the book of promoting health, hope and harmony on planet Earth, I simply can't describe the exhilaration of having that colorful endorsement from the queen of our planet herself -- on the birthday of "Big Blue," my nickname for our book.
Having already signed every book with my new standard signature, "H3 -- JMH," it made that "H cubed" much more meaningful and a permanent reminder of a very special evening in Stonington, CT. FYI, you will find the word harmony in the first sentence of the Introduction and you will find the phrase health, hope and harmony in the final paragraph on the last page of the book.
