I love producing books for my friends. The collaboration is a terrific way to create something together, and it can be a powerful experience for both of us.

This month I completed a long project with an old friend. It was a project that sent us looking all over the world to find exactly the right people to create the book with us. It involved many failures along the way, uncertainty and nonstop drama.

I have the book next to me and I’m pausing for a minute while writing an article about it for my blog next week. I’m going to go back to this article, but I wanted to let you know why there’s no article here today. I hope you’ll stop by next week and check it out. Maybe you’ll feel something of what I felt having a part in creating this very special book.

And don’t miss tomorrow’s This Week in the Blogs for links to some of the week’s best reading. See you then!
