Andrew Ordover's ramblings on writing, teaching, living, raising children, and whatever else comes to mind
JIM: Hide and Seek?MORDECAI: It's a game, Pogo—the one I'm playing with myself—my real self, deep down.
CHESTER: No, no. God, or the world, or whatever is out there, is playing it--with all of us. See, God is like this tremendous hand, and we, all of us, everything, are like the fingers. What God does is, he splits himself up into all these different parts, all these fingers: plants, fish, people, rocks—and then—this is the amazing part— he forgets! He forgets what he's done. He plays a game with himself, see? Hide and Seek! That's what the veils are for—so he can forget—so we can forget where it all came from. We see the fingers, but we never see the hand.
