Episode 16: Marilyn / Waking Up the Ghost

69 minutes

Waking Up the Ghost? I’ll let Marilyn explain:

“… the first time I heard that expression, I was sitting on a deserted island in the Exumas, with a jaundiced Bahamian named Sands. I think it is also the first time a Bahamian man has ever refused a free drink. What Sands meant, was that the icy beer I offered would lead to another, and another and another; it was safer to keep the Ghost in check by not drinking at all.”

A year and a half into her recovery Marilyn shares some insight on keeping the spirit(s) at bay.
