We Need Them All



“Before you become too entranced with gorgeous gadgets and mesmerizing video displays, let me remind you that information is not knowledge, knowledge is not wisdom, and wisdom is not foresight. Each grows out of the other, and we need them all.”
― Arthur C. Clarke


It’s that time of year when

people look forward


many things





between many things

far from the maddening crowd

where they can

review what has been


assess what is to come

what am I anticipating


as in I like that period of nothing

which happens just after

a great expectation has come

and gone

just before you decide whether

you’re disappointed

or not

what new horizon is my gaze resting upon

it’s still blurry


may seem crazy



but I am curious to see what shape it eventually takes

when it comes into focus

where is my place

right here



“Now I understand,” said the last man.”
― Arthur C. Clarke
