The First Day of Spring?
I was out walking this afternoon, and suddenly it seemed as if the atmosphere changed. The wind stopped cutting into me, I could sense the sun on my face. In the distance, I could see the sunlight being reflected in windows, golden, dazzling ! My spirit suddenly lifted. It was like hearing a great piece of music, or reading a really inspirational poem. The first day of spring ? I hope so.
I Know That I Know Nothing
I sit here, on top of 48 years. I get sick of myself, so God knows how other people may feel. Sometimes it seems like I have been here, forever, at other times I feel just like a child. But, at least I know that I know nothing. That is the only way that wisdom comes. Are the philosophers the ones to take notice of? I don't know, but nobody, nowadays knows who they are. People get their opinions from tabloid newspapers, and dumbed down T.V. If Buddha, Jesus, or Allah arrived on Earth today, no one would even notice. Or as Jack Kerouac once said "If Jesus tried to walk across modern day America, he'd be arrested outside Altoona, Pennsylvania."
