A Rewording Life - Finding Meaning in the Word

My mother—Yolande Gordon—lost all of her words to dementia. I want to harness words that addle my mind while I still can to help end this pernicious disease; obscure, difficult to remember words like aleatory, amanuensis, apposite, etc. In doing so, I'm hoping to find meaning in the word—and the world at large.
