Knowledge Reigns Supreme

Today is another beautiful day in DC. This means great weather two days in a row. I guess it's safe to say I have spring fever. It was very difficult to get out of bed this morning. I finally got myself going and got out of my apartment on schedule. The commute was pleasant. I got some reading done on the train, but that is usual. I always read on the train despite the many distractions. I am on this campaign to read more books and watch less television. It has been working! It is all in my efforts to become a more effective educator. I also feel that it will better prepare for what is to come. So, I seek knowledge and pray for wisdom. Knowledge + Wisdom = Understanding. This journey started when I was young.

I have been infactuated with knowledge since I was boy, but I was always afraid to approach her. She seemed larger than life and beyond my realm of comprehension. I would come close enough just to get a little of what she had to offer me. I didn't get too close because my peers would tease me and girls would call me soft. I became older and that infactuation turned into true love. Now, I spend time with her and I've been trying lately to give her the attention she deserves. Knowledge gives me light where there was darkness. She gives clarity to things that were once murky. Knowledge also dispels myths and conjectures that I once thought true. She broadens my vocabulary and allows me to express myself more clearly. She is my sunshine and my light. She is my true love. Anyway, I am beginning to ramble. I will leave on this note. Make this a fantastic and wonderful day! Peace~

Knowledge, I know her as well. She's real sweet. I don't always want to hear what she has to say however because I hate the fact that she's ALWAYS right. Nevertheless, she's one the best friends anyone can ever have and I'm glad to know that you are cultivating your relationship with her.

Be blessed today!
