I Think It's Working. . . Maybe. . .

In honor of today being my 58th birthday (thus completing my second 29. . .), and Wednesday marking the beginning of the penitential season of Lent, I offer one of my all-time favorite quotes, from George MacDonald:

The business of the Universe
     is to make such a fool of you
          that you will know yourself for one
               and so begin to be wise.


At least, I'm definitely coming to a deeper understanding of just what a fool I am.  As to the onset of actual wisdom. . . well, that's not for me to say. . .
