We forget a lot of things along the way to wisdom.
We forget to carry ourself into things
We forget to be ready
There is a moment just past wisdom which is very much like singing
in an empty marketplace
or losing your shoes in the afternoon
You need to be ready to lose your shoes in the afternoon
or abandon a magic trick
in the river at midnight
to own your own morning times
to be ready to spill out all your secrets at a moment’s notice
I can recommend: you carry your own name safely but also several others
because anything could happen
I can recommend: you conjure an audience inside you
but remember to sometimes drown them
or step off-stage without warning—it’s important to be bold.
It’s important to be ready.
