Alphabet of Abundance for 2015 continues with X

The Xylophone is a wonderful instrument that makes sweet music to my ear and is used widely in many African cultures, where there are also xenagogues, whose sole roles were to guide strangers to observe and experience their culture. Being xenial was the norm. Once, not long ago, we were all xenodochial, kindness to strangers was not a stretch. Also many were xenolalia, and understood several languages they never studied. Wood was the first thing my character, God-Free, in It Begins With Tears tasted, the wood that made his mother’s coffin, and as a result he became a xylograher, and would spend his life as an unofficial xylologyist, studying wood before carving them. As a result of his keen interest and love of wood he discovered the science of xylotherapy and knew which woods to use to treat which disease.
