ABOUT YAWDY RUM - SUMMARY

An old New Orleans jazz musician and a secret that will harmonize your life; The Wisdom of Yawdy Rum is a story that blends memoir and inspirational writing with a spicy mix of New Orleans jazz, cuisine, and history. It’s a story about relationships, self-discovery, finding balance, setting priorities, and discovering the power of paying attention.

From this meeting, grows an endearing tale that leads to the world of New Orleans jazz, corporate politics, and hurricanes — both real and emotional.
