The anthology, A REWORDING LIFE, Features Over 1000+ Cool Canadians Who Came Together to Try and Put the End in DemENDtia
TORONTO, Sept. 20, 2016 /CNW/ - When Ms. Gordon saw her mother lose her words to dementia, she understood like never before that words have meaning. To honour her mom, she asked Canadians who help make her life rewarding (authors, musicians, etc.) to pen an indelible sentence for an abstruse, bemusing, or convoluted word; she chose words she often forgets or can't easily define:
I eschew the cashew; I'm allergic, and it makes me ah-chooo.
- Robert Hough, Writer
No, he wasn't wearing a gorilla suit; he was simply very hirsute.
- Tony Dekker, Musician, Great Lake Swimmers
Scattered between the 1000+ sentences in the book are eight heartfelt essays written by Ms. Gordon. The first letter of each essay spells 'dementia.' Ms. Gordon hopes readers can embrace this scattered concept. Confusion is, after all, the nature of this disease.
Profits to help put the end in demENDtia.
