Oh yeah, definitely. It has to do with the capacity of making distinctions. We make more refined and precise distinctions the broader or vocabulary. But there is also another dimension to reading that exceeds amplification of vocabulary. That is the great and ineffable joy of partaking of other lives, other places, being in the head and feelings of other people. Seeing things through other eyes. Expanding our own vital narratives through somebody else’s narratives. An alterity feast.
