Reading The Word Exchange by Alena Graedon, and so far, it's like a modern Fahrenheit 451. This quote is just amazing:
"Words are living legends, swollen with significance. We string them together to make stories, but they themselves are stories, encapsulating rich, runny histories."
(PS: Last week was a very. long. week. So I hope you'll excuse the silence of the blog. I didn't even have the energy to whip up a little something to post. Between the emotions of the funeral of my husband's uncle and the energy draining back-to-back meetings and events (at and outside of work) of the other four days, I have read next to nothing, falling asleep every time I tried actually. I also totally dropped the ball on most other blog activity, from social media to reading other blogs. Hopefully this week will bring it all back to normal.)
