I do like the way you think jerami. You're right. Some have closed the book, and some think they've written the book. As far as I see it, there has to be a book, but the pages are written in, what so far appears to be, invisible ink.
It seems to me that as I get older, all I really know is how much I don't know. That doesn't mean I'm going to give up learning things, but I sure won't make the assumption that I've already learned it all.
Sometimes I thing , the more I learn, the further away from the simple truth I am.
When we become confused because we don't undrstand all the facts, we don't need more facts. When we get confused we need to back up and rethink what we already think we know before we add to it. First figure out where we are in our thinking, before proceeding farther.
Nobody bats a thousand. I like the way you think too Jerami. And your right about something hidden in plain sight. I had something out on hubs recently and the answer was right in front of them.Your one smart n lovable lady Mo!
