Today’s T.S. Tuesday tongue twister is taken from the talented teller of tales’ text titled Ash Wednesday:
“And the light shone in darkness and
Against the Word the unstilled world still whirled
About the centre of the silent Word.” T.S. Eliot, Ash Wednesday
Typical Eliot,writing in circles around my brain. But I love the alliteration, the paradox, the wordplay (it’s not really appropriate to write Wordplay, is it?) and the reminder that Love is the center of it all.
Also, I just learned that in Spanish The Word–as in Jesus–is translated as El Verbo. Literally, The Verb. Turns out Spanish speakers knew a thing or two about “Love does” before Bob Goff came on the scene.
