Product Description & Reviews
These are my stories losing language in a stroke, then brain trauma. I'm a clinical psychologist, psychoanalyst, baby observer, bird watcher. My sense of self survived using these skills to reflect on walking through a wilderness without read signs. I found languages outside of verbal language that took me to whole new worlds... To speak at all was to locate the fewest words to express anything. I wanted to keep this spare language to convey the unimaginable. Digging deep, then deeper again, I rooted into memory to illuminate for those can't imagine the loss of language. And I wanted to speak for those thousands who have lost language and can't ever tell you it is... Catastrophe comes with deep choices: One can fall apart emotionally, be miserable about the unfairness, or pick up the challenge and reenter life with vitality whatever the personal conditions. These stories are about what it means to survive, what it means to find a place to live well despite circumstance.
