Lately, Josh and I have been addicted to Scrabble. We play on facebook throughout the day. We play for real, after the kids have gone to bed. It's not so much the game...as it's that we're doing something together.
Tonight, as we cleared the board, I watched all those tiles fall back into the little black bag. All those words that we struggled to make...quickly fell into darkness and were gone. Everything that had been said...gone. It was now all jumbled up, ready to become new words.
How wonderful would it be, if we could do that in the real world? Take all the mean words...the bad words...the hateful words...and make them disappear? We might hear them...but we could instantly displace them, so that they no longer had power.
What a wonderful world that would be.
Until then, I'm gonna plug my ears.
La la la la la la la
I can't hear you.
