It's another reminder of the power words have to confuse and mislead us; something I've been thinking about off and on lately -- primarily in connection with Pentecost; that moment in time when everyone, however briefly, could understand one another despite the language differences. Because much of the time it seems that language, though supposedly a way for us to communicate with and understand one another, serves more effectively as a barrier than as a bridge.
But since I'm still a little jet-lagged, I think I'll just leave it at that, and not try to explain or explore. Perhaps tomorrow my thoughts will have more of the clarity of this photo...
