As my eyesight fails, my insight appears to improve. Hmm. Does that mean that un-sighted people are the wisest? That’s always a possibility. One perception is that if it’s not the level of eyesight that matters, but rather the full experience of failing eyesight … all the way to realizing that the size, shape and color of a thing are immaterial. What a thought. That may lead to a world-wide epidemic! Of … of … peace. It might also be with us for generations! If so, we have evolved. If not, we are in the birth process. Perhaps the current level of pain, both physical and all other in our society, will tell us how far along we are.

I haven’t bought a cigar …


… yet.
