Many words are old.

The practice of putting sounds together to make meaning is old.

Sitting with words maybe we can hear in them some old hopes that didn't get to be real when the words were new.

Maybe there were hopes around when the words were created taht couldn't happen because too many people were run down and sick. Maybe they couldn't happen because the often run-down and sick people had little power and the top people had too much.

Maybe now, with some better health, some power spread around, we can hear the hopes floating around the old words and make the hopes real and new.
