Epiphany VI

Maybe at Eighty?

They say wisdom comes as you age—

Now I’m in a real jam—

at sixty I should be a sage—

look what a fool I am!

~ S. Minanel

[There is] a humor that has the universal appeal of holding up the mirror for us to unthreateningly see ourselves and the human condition in wonderful clarity. 

Thank God for the grace of humor, without which we would be less than human and less aware of the signals of transcendence within ourselves and others.

~ William O. Brown
