My friends are breaking my heart.
Two pursuits – some would say obsessions – have marked my adult life: wisdom and efficiency.
I tell people I have been chasing wisdom for about 20 years, and I honestly do not believe I have caught much yet. Not very efficient, I know.
My desire for efficiency in a short life means I do not to sugar-coat my truth. My perspectives are not very mainstream American, and when asked for my thoughts, I share them in a blunt and too-honest manner. Not very wise, I know.
Some days I feel I have just a tiny bit of wisdom to share with the people near me who may need it. Some days wisdom is far from my grasp. Today is that second kind, but I need it to be the first.
I seem to know a lot of people here, in my home town. A lot.
