justprompts Is there such a thing as truly wiping the slate clean and starting over?  

There's dust when you wipe the slate clean. Even if you use water, that leaves behind residue as well. If you throw the slate out the window it doesn't disappear. If you smash it into a million pieces, those pieces still exist.

I have started over many times so I know. All the dust and all the broken pieces are always still there.

Chalk dust is beautiful. And water, when it falls in drops on the table. The cheapest glass can glitter like crystal when crushed. It's wondrous if you know how to look.

Stars start over, just like us. Everything starts over eventually. Everything… continues.

No, there is no such thing as wiping the slate clean. And there shouldn't be. Recycling is good for the environment.

Go green.

True. And meet lots of people. But it's not so bad to hold on sometimes, either.

Well, you're welcome. But thank you, too.

I suppose not.

Fsst, I didn't do a damn thing.

Sure you did.
Now I have a munchkin to get in bed, but we'll talk soon, okay?

You bet. Sleep tight.
