    Words To Me

    Weaving Emotions Into Strings of Words...

     I'm addicted. I can't go without reading, literature, fiction, research, spirituality, anything except the news. I'm nearly as addicted to reading as to writing. Weaving emotions into strings of words that make up the blanket of escapism. I love languages and I...
