It seems to me that when I truly need wisdom, I should spend some time with a child. Children see the world differently and seem to be intuitive by nature. Recently a 10 year old boy informed me that I should probably read a book, like the kind they asked you to read in school.
So I went back to my trusty journal to see what books I had read in school. I came across a long forgotten confession. I was suppose to read “The Great Gatsby”. Instead I read all the notes on it I could find to do the work and pass the test.
I decided on the advice of a 10 year old that it was probably time that I read the book.
I found the book interesting and I found that I wanted to learn more about the author. As is often the case, his quotes are telling.
