People Are Food Too
People in our lives are like food: we can choose to allow them to be a part of our diet, or we can exclude them. We flavor our friendships with memories of our past. Sometimes we make healthy choices for our self-esteem, and sometimes we make choices that are not so nutritious. We are who we are because of choices and happenstance. Maybe we had a little shove from some unexpected angle, or maybe we didn’t. In any case, something helped us find the place we now occupy.
People Are Food Too is a real life journey of a dyslexic, ADHD person. It is the story of poverty and wealth as well as a story of discovery. It is a non-chronological series of events that leads the reader to the conclusion that people are food for the soul.
The people around us become the spiritual nutrition that inevitably defines our presence. We become that which surrounds us. In a sense we become our environment. Survival is not always a given and life is a fragile thing. A journey to the Deep South and the gulf coast is the foundation for this story. The struggle for survival and discoveries that jump the bounds of time and space are the walls that rest on the foundation. And the coincidental miracles cover and protect the interiors. This story is all true.
