Now I can explain in words what this thing in my brain does. They call it aphasia.


If you’ve ever wondered  what it’s  like to live with aphasia, I’ve found the words that explain it best to me. And it’s compiled by just stacking six books. Stan Carey, at Sentence First, you are a wonder.

Forest of symbols

The forest of symbols,
The eye beguiled:
Tree of smoke

Through the language glass,
Everything you know
Lost in translation.

That’s worth keeping in my never-ending jar of unforgettables.

And to think Mrs Doubtfire tried to correct my aphasia
