Hello and good-bye
Givers and takers
Joy and pain
Health and sickness (Did you use all your letters?)
Peace and strife
So much – so little
Change and static
Too much quiet and too much noise
The moments of our lives fit together like word – tiles in Scrabble. Some words fit together and some don’t. If you are lucky, you can score big and if the letters you draw are not good – tough luck. We build on words and make connections. We take our turn and wait again.
The final score can only be when the tiles run out and there are no more words to spell. When it’s over, the other players “p-a-y” their tiles to you. There is no going back. There is no c-h-e-a-t-i-n-g. It is the luck of the draw that gives some good fortune and others with little to build on.
Happy and sad (Two more tiles to draw)
F-a-m-i-l-y and f-r-i-e-n-d-s
B-u-i-l-d them while you can. Who won? In life, there is no score. In the end, it’s not whether you win or lose – but it is all in your g-e-n-e-s and how you played the game.
