Thanks so very much. I would suspect that every single generation from the beginning of time has to pay the Piper for perspective. Frankly, I can’t see how it can happen any other way. The only way I can know is through experience. To your point, I recall many years ago commenting, with all the arrogance of extreme youth, to a longtime friend that “I know how the Universe works.” His PFFT was a lot louder than yours. Of course at this point that makes me do precisely the same thing. My GOD what a foolish thing to say. I guess what the challenge is, is to stay open and soft like the very very young, and combine that with whatever wisdom we may be gaining as we develop. I have NO answers whatsoever. None at all. All I have are questions. For what it’s worth, perhaps that’s real progress.
