I wrote the following as a comment on FB:
I learn something new every day… I like to say that I know less at 62 than I did at 18. I think that you know exactly what I mean. As I tell my co-workers only half-jokingly, “Sgt Schultz was right!” Actually, it’s both “learning” and “unlearning”… paradoxically, that IS the path to wisdom.
Indeed… as an “elder”, I’m supposed to “know”… but I’m all-too-aware of my limitations and lacks. Perhaps, that IS what “eldership” is all about… knowing one’s limitations, but knowing that one has to do something, any road. It’s not easy being green…
