I love words.
I was lucky to be born in a time and place where my love for words was encouraged and indulged.
I was extra lucky to have had a teacher who saw me for who I was and who I could be when I was young, brash, naive and more than a little sad. She made a lot of difference in my life.
Today I’m celebrating a special birthday with her and her loved ones and I made this gift for her. It is my absolute favourite word.
I suspect she knows only a little of how much her words helped me grow taller, stronger, more confident to be me….more graceful.
Did you have a special teacher?
