Spike speaks and Zach leaves the crowd “breathless”

Had the joy and privilege of doing a father-son book event at the Book Shelf bookstore in Winona last week I talked about “Cabin Lessons” and Zach talked about “The Breathe Book” and conducted a 4 minute “breathe—inar.” We had a blast, the audience had a blast, it was a blast.
