the most beautiful lessons are plain to see

As I start sharing words in this public space I am reminded that words have been gifts of insight and love. To all, beyoutiful.


lis'in up you hear, the most

beyoutiful thin' in this h're world

is yuz bein' yuzself.

My pappy taught me this h're

iz d'truth. Pappy he done knows

many thin'z 'bout fiztin' up

an' maken' thin's do

what thay waz meant fur.

But, like he says, fitzin' what wuz

broke in him wuz the key.

I'm here to tell you

that man was ugly to look at

but he was beyoutiful.

Knowledge is...

Knowledge is dangerous. Or is that incorrect, is it liberating? Is knowledge the ticket or can it be a straw that breaks the camel’s back?. Pithy sayings work in context and fall flat otherwise. Knowledge is it the bite of the Apple and the Fall of mankind. Is it product to be managed or an asset… or a lifelong pursuit? Imagination is more important than knowledge. Einstein already posited that. Others such as Goethe declare its value is in its application

Is there a growing conformity as posited by Jung or is that a conspiratorial theory. This ramble started with a conspiratorial spiral – the echo of a President repeating Knowledge is dangerous.
