I had a busy week, meeting some delightful new people and celebrating events with old friends and extended family. The book came up in conversation quite a lot because its release is still so fresh. More than once someone led me away from the crowd by the elbow to learn about my motivations for writing the book and to thank me for shedding positive light on their nonreligious lifestyle.
And so began the unearthing: the moments when friends and family quietly offer thanks for having written a book that celebrates freethought.
I expect this will happen regularly. Nonreligious people don't have many opportunities to openly share our rational beliefs. Wonderful Without Religion has catalyzed atheists and agnostics and humanists to come out of their quiet places.
It's a great time to show the world just how awesome we are.
