My aunt has a way with words I so envy. I often rely on snark and attitude to get my point across, falling back on comedy to mask the turmoil inside. She has an open sweetness that so many people have responded to and I admire her ability to be vulnerable and strong at the same time.
Her poetry is lovely. Once upon a time, I wrote poems too, but none quite so lovely as hers. I had a pleasure of hearing her read this one to me last weekend and I would like to share it with you now.
Find her, follow her — you won’t regret it. She’ll light up your day, I promise.
