David Abram in Spell of the Sensuous wrote, “Only if words are felt, bodily presences, like echoes or waterfalls, can we understand the power of spoken language to influence, alter and transform the perceptual world.”


Jane and I spoke to each other in the morning over the phone, and then, we each wrote, and then, we again spoke to each other to read to the other what we had written. I believe that allowed us to feel our words as “bodily presences, like echoes or waterfalls.”
