a photo speaks a thousand words
I'm not sure if it's learnt or something you're born with, but I can't read. Obviously I can read. What I mean is, like so many people out there, I have reading difficulties. It's got any names; dyslexia is the most popular.
I envy people that can get lost in a book, apparently oblivious to the surrounding stimuli beckoning their attention. I am, nevertheless, grateful for two things: Audibooks and photobooks. Audiobooks because someone else more competent converts text to pleasant sound. Photobooks because, well, a photo speaks a thousand words.
