Wisdom is a funny thing, generally applied to the elderly but sometimes a youngster is considered wise for their years. As near as i can tell it's the measure of how many mistakes you've made that you're afraid of repeating. Perhaps there is another sort of wisdom that isn't a measure of fear/caution. But perhaps embracing joy is just another measure of fear of losing joy. And maybe it can be embraced for the joy of it... but somehow i find fear inescapable... and wisdom elusive. Pass the cookies.
