Hello, my name is Yolande and it has been 14 days since my last blog. From somewhere deep in the recesses of the internet I hear other blog-a-holics say keep coming back. As a recovering alcoholic who has not had a drink in 24 years, writing is my drug of choice. I see words, I hear words, words move me and motivate me and I live by them. I know that sounds weird, yes we all talk and write and speak yet for me words really are my drug. When I hear a lyric, a stanza, a phrase, a sentence, an idea or aha experience spoken, I grow. I grow into who I am and who I will be. Ever since I can remember I have thrived on the words and the sense memories that they still continue to elicit in me which keep me moving forward. The words my daddy spoke to me and the look in his eyes as he spoke them comfort me. He always loved me, forgave me and took care of me. I miss him. I can only imagine what a wonderful reunion we will have some time in the future. My life in words continue to amaze me and make me cry. I am blessed.
