When Words Fail (with thanks to Shrek The Musical)

There are times when what I have to say fits into a nice little several hundred word package. And then there are times when the hours are short and the crises are long, when there are not enough words, or there are way too many words to tie up in that several hundred word package. Which makes me wonder--what is it we do when words fail?

When words fail, are thoughts enough?

When words fail, does a shared meal fill the gap?

When words fail, can a hug say what you want to say?

When words fail, is there still music?

When words fail, are there still pictures in our heads?

When words fail, are there still ideas?

When words fail, is it still worth writing?


Because maybe, that is a word that never fails...
