Word into World

“A word is heard and the body trembles.  But this trembling is only possibly if body and word are the same thing.”

- Rubem Alves

The gap between “word” and “world” is miniscule.  All it takes for one to become the other is one small vertical stroke.  Or one small heart that welcomes the word into the body, into the world.

So it is that the word which became flesh long ago still becomes flesh today.
