Opposites

Like the Word Association game, but let's see if we can come up with just the converse of the previous word, or at least someting utterly different. Not sure how it'll work, so dying to try it out.

My concern is that once the opposite word is presented, we will need a new word to oppose or we'll go back and forth on the same set of opposites ;D

:D

It did occur to me, but I'm sure totally different opposites will be thought of - how many times have you looked at Word Association, thought up a really terrific similarity, and seen that somebody has posted someting entirely different that has led off on a massive tangent? I am relying on the brilliant imaginations of my fellow Zooites . . .

Oh let me just a moment stay
where time is not and angels play the paeans of the galaxies;
then speed the stardust on its flight
to change dread darkness into light, cold chaos into ecstasy!
