The Week Ahead…& Abby Maslin’s Book Talk Last Thursday at Northeast Library

Abby Maslin, whose husband TC Maslin, was the victim of a horrific crime near Eastern Market seven ago, spoke about her book Love You Hard last Thursday at Northeast Library.  TC suffered a brain injury that changed him into another person.  Maslin said that she “can’t compare TC to the person we both lost” and that she had to find a way to love the new person he had become. She calls the book a love letter to him and to DC. 
TC went back to work as a renewable energy analyst two and a half years after his injury. He suffers chronic pain and disabilities – but exercises daily, she says, “as a matter of survival so he can be there for our kids.”  (They decided to have a second child during his recover.)  She says “Life feels urgent to me now – I’ve got this done and feel the need to hurry to do what’s next.”  And, she lives with a “deep sense of gratitude every day – an appreciation of the things people don’t pay attention to – the small things – the gifts I have in my life.”  Maslin continues to teach at a Capitol Hill elementary school.  She and TC live on Capitol Hill.
