“Butterflies and Battleaxes” by Mercedes M. Yardley

Hey, it’s my YouTube debut, and it doesn’t involve any singing or dancing! Check out this reading of my essay “Butterflies and Battleaxes,” a chapter from my Williams Syndrome memoir.

Thanks to Mason Bundschuh of Atlas Takes Aim for the uber cool music and JBund for the very striking video.

    You rock, Harley. Big time.

    Mason, thanks so much for your help. Thank J. for me, too. You guys made this so much better than what it would have originally been. “Wheels of steel!” 😉

    Thanks, Noel! 😀

    Thank you, Deborah. Your words are so poetic that it means a lot to hear you compliment mine.

    Thanks, Regan! Hooray!
