"Words are events, they do things, change things. They transform both speaker and hearer; they feed energy back and forth and amplify it. They feed understanding or emotion back and forth and amplify it."
-Ursula Le Guin, Telling is Listening
I finished rereading her Left Hand of Darkness last November. I'm currently reading Wave in the Mind. Her writing resonates.
I just heard the news of her passing this evening. Rest in peace.
