“When you turn around, you’ll see something I bet you’ve never seen before. If it takes your breath away, then you’ll fit in nicely. If you don’t feel anything, then maybe you don’t belong here.” - Daniel's Esperanza, Veronica Randolph Batterson
In 2014 my novel, Daniel’s Esperanza, was published and I never imagined a quote from the book would mean so much to so many people. Someone somewhere used it, applied it to something inspirational, often in reference to the state of New Mexico, attached hashtags and it took off into the virtual world like wildfire. Thank you to all who give me credit for it, and for referencing the book. I’ve posted about this previously, but I continue to be amazed at its relevance to so many people and that it came from this little book, which means so much to me. I’m grateful.
Below are snapshots of some of the places this quote resides. Again, thanks to all who give me the appropriate credit for it. It’s appreciated.
