Length – two pages
Words are powerful. Yesterday you used a word to invoke memories. Today the same word will take you to the future.
Imagine the next many years have been kind to you, and at the age of 90, you have lived a full life. Someone near and dear comes to visit. Close your eyes and imagine having a new playful experience with the word from day one. For me, it would be an experience with a kite. When you have a clear idea, open your eyes and write a page.
Once again, close your eyes and see yourself tell a story to your companion from before. The story is about a memory where the same word played a part. Then write one more page.
