Inherent Wisdom.

Every now and then, I get tired of trying to solve all of the world’s problems. That would be an easy task, but the rest of the people of the world just won’t follow my instructions. So, we find ourselves in a messy election cycle, and a messy stock market scandal, and a messy political solution to the world financial problems. Soon it comes to the point where you just want to chuck it all and think about happier things.

The local blogs have an individual commenter that shows up sporadically and makes comments that some understand and others don’t. What scares me is I understand much of what she has to say. Some times I even find some inherent wisdom, that just speaks volume to me about something that I was just thinking about

I was just thinking that our lawmakers shouldn’t try so hard to lay the blame, or take the credit, for every political move they make. They should try to do a better job of representing the common American, the ones that they are supposed to represent, maybe they would come to and understanding of each other and be able to do their jobs.

So, needless to say, I was delighted to see a comment from Suzy Blah Blah. Her comments always seem to be topical and fairly close to what is being discussed, but she turns her comment into a delightful stream of, almost, incomprehensible babble. She is never mean or accusatory, she even tries to help the rats that chew up her water lines by putting out water bowls for them.

But I digress. What I’m getting around to saying is that is you look for wisdom in people you will probably find it. Something Suzy said stuck in my brain and it wouldn’t go away. What she said was probably unintentional, so it must be something in the way she thinks, which makes her seem to be a much better person in my eyes. This was taken from her comment in a reply, which I find worth saving to think about another day.

“love is always perfreeable to understanding anyway --except soemtimes i think maybe theyre close to the same thing…”

Suzy Blah Blah

Those of you who read and enjoy Shakespeare, or other great works of literature, probably spend a good part of your time pondering the meaning of what he said. So I will just leave you with a new, and original, work of literature to ponder. Personally, I printed it out 8”x10” and put it on my office wall. I intend to try and understand it a bit more someday.

One thing that I never do is discount another human being from what I see on the surface. Some of the most wise people that I have ever known, never graduated from grammar school. So I’m an expert I reading between the lines. Take the time to share other peoples wisdom.

Thanks Suzy!!! Drop a line anytime. (That's not what I mean, and you know it!)

Gosh it looks really really prettty in fancyfont and even a oaken frame wow!
I am sooooooooooooo honered

thank yuo Ernie --HUGE HUG,

Why is my verse so barren of new pride,
So far from variation or quick change?
Why with the time do I not glance aside
To new-found methods and to compounds strange?
Why write I still all one, ever the same,
And keep invention in a
noted weed,
That every word doth almost tell my name,
Showing their birth and where they did proceed?
O, know, sweet love, I always write of you,
And you and love are still my argument;
So all my best is dressing old words new,
Spending again what is already spent:
For as the sun is daily new and old,
So is my love still telling what is told.

Wm Shakespeare

Thank-you for the Thank-you Suzy. I’m sure you know, but for the benefit of others, the line that you highlighted about the “noted weed” has an interesting interpretation.

“Weed” in Shakespeare’s day was your “manner of dress“, as in; “She was dressed in widows weed”, actually means that she was dressed up in black, and had her face covered suitable for mourning.

The line “And keep invention in a noted weed,”was about his talent as a writer. “Invention” is used as a reference to his ability to create writing. So, the line roughly interpreted by me means; “To keep my writing talent dressed in the finest verbage”.

He meant that what he was saying, he wanted to say well. That is a talent that a lot of us aspire to achieve, but alas, none of us will ever do as well as Shakespeare.
