For as long as I can remember, words had an impact on my life. As a child I was diagnosed with dyslexia, but my Nonna never let me use that for excuse. And she hated the word bored. “As long as you have books and imagination you will never be bored.” I can still hear her voice. Often on rainy days she’d sit us down with a list of words and see how many words we could create out of the list of words.
