  • What is wisdom?
    by Sue on March 21, 2019 at 10:19 am

    Indeed… It’s as elusive as it is tangible. Thinkers have been trying to pin it down for millennia. Seekers are always searching for it. It’s a prize jewel. A clear flowing stream.

    We have so much to be grateful for. Every day. And yet, we’re often not very good at practising the habit. We’re usually rushing into the next thing.
