The Getting of Wisdom
I remember discussing this with my Dad: Is wisdom something you get when you are older, or does it have nothing to do with age?
I thought then I would be wise by now – I am not.
But I am old enough to tell the difference between truth and lie, wisdom and folly, sense and bullshit. I am old enough to recognize wisdom when I see it.
The Wisdom Project is my journey to find wisdom. It takes a variety of forms: audiobooks, videobooks, a podcast, and each form offers a different aspect of my search.
I look in the wise books of old and in the wise books of today; I will think and write about poetry and prose; I will speak to men and women who appear to have found a little piece of wisdom that they can share.
The time has come to stop trying to prove that I am a good writer and to find something the world needs and share it.
