With words we open life, or close it. The language we use is a powerful act of creation. Everything we say is something about being, something about bringing forth our life together.  In Medicine Words, Dianne Connelly illumines how we shape our lives with words, how we word the world in everything we say, how we make meaning. Every word is a world. She summons us to use language the way a great violinist uses the bow on her violin. She insists that as speakers and listeners we must wake up to what this shared world needs to hear us say, a world of dwelling thinking in our every word, a dictionary for living.Dianne grabs us by the scruff of the neck to design and choose living, breathing words to help us live, a language of love for the treatment room of life; medicine is whatever helps us live.
