    nothing beats the old addage “wisdom is knowing the difference between the things you can change and those that you cannot.” now accepting those limits-that is for the next blog! lol.

    Wisdom to me of reading about mankinds history and how little it has changed, despite these lessons history has to teach. Their are no new “sins” or “mistakes”, which ever way you want to define them. We each go through this maturing as individuals in our lives. What I find facinating is how each individual has a differing view on what “sin/mistake” holds most importance to them as an individual. The most important wisdom to me is accepting each person and their views as “important” as you do your own. In this way I feel society will not only mature, but also become more civilized as a people.

    Glad you found the blog. I don’t hear from many MySpace friends over here. Your point is well-taken. I think the greatest wisdom I’ve learned is to accept it regardless of its source.

    People you despise can sometimes have very good ideas and we ignore a good idea to our peril. People we really respect can have ridiculous ideas and to follow them would be foolish.

    Great to hear from you.
