I am a self confessed collector of words. I like the way Acapulco and voluptuous sound when I say them aloud. I could spend afternoons with stars in my eyes listening to anyone speak another language...abstract words, painted expression - -falling on my eyes and ears. In each book I own you are likely to find underlines and highlights. I re-read poetry and well worn lines I love anew each time.
Listening last night to Barack Obama speak, I sat mesmerised, slowly taking in each word, realising I love the way he uses language. His speeches are contagious - I always feel inspired and connected afterwards. For the first time in 31 years of living, I believe in a president - and that feels so good. Today is a new day!!
