Big scientific breakthrough!
I often wonder if we really do get wiser with age. And guess what?
After today, I believe it is true.
At 3/4 of a century I have attained knowledge that is surprising. An awareness, if you will. Truths that have surfaced. Misconceptions corrected. Perceptions that one believed for decades or eons. And the rest of the story (as they say).
Something happened today that completely and thoroughly shocked me. I won’t give details, because I never do.
I had an idea about a particular person that I had clung to for over fifty years. An idea in which I believed this person had had a particularly lush lovely life, which secretly I resented. Though I would have denied such a thing and believed the denial to be true.
Not only was my perception completely wrong, I then had to consider, why I let this thing live rent free in my mind for all those years.
See truth brought wisdom. And there have been several similar -on a much smaller scale – things that have come to light in my seventh decade.
That have made me wiser. Really wiser, Really!
So I got to thinking and came to the realization that at this pace of epiphany I should be 100% wise by 100 years!!
P.S. no need to inject reality here folks!
So I am off to contemplate the approach of perfect wisdom in twenty-five short years and bid you adieu from North of 43!
