      I survived my childhood relatively unscathed and as a young adult, minimal scarring. But while I love to remember fondly, I would not like to be young in todays world. Too scary.

    Us Brits are often reluctant to blow our own trumpets (really!) Sometimes, folk ask you what kindnesses you’re involved with or arranged, and it seems cheesy to actually admit to any kindness because, surely, it demeans it?! The same goes for thinking you’re wiser…By whose criteria? I know one thing, the more I learn and know, the more I realize there is to learn and know…(Secret admission…I do think I’m just a teeny bit wiser!) x

      We Canadians take after the you and I will say this about the Brits: You gave us Language, Laws, Kindness and Tenacity. You still stand as the standard for good taste and for humour. And you do it with humility. You are wise (most of you, there are a few stragglers) but you also acknowledge that you have more to learn. We all do.

    I sure hope I’ve gained wisdom as I’ve aged. Unfortunately some people only gain weight!!

    I wouldn’t want to be young in today’s world either. I grew up during WWII, and even with the war, it was a safer time, and I felt much more secure and protected. Today’s world is neither safe nor secure.

      I like to think I have gained a lot. (other than the hips) I have gained friendships and knowledge. I have gained interests and skills. And most of all I have gained the wisdom to know that I still have so much to learn.

      Hi Pamela, Aah, how kind to say that! The one type of Brit I don ‘t like are often from the so-called upper classes with strong Colonial beliefs (the ones who treat waiters and cleaners like inferior beings. Ugh!) Luckily my husband was born in the East End of London, is a gent and funny! x

    Ah Wizz Dumb – pronounced that way. not spelled that way. Know there is much to learn and lots of reasons to duck and otherwise self protect. One of the variations being that which does not kill us makes us stronger. And wiser if we are lucky and or learn readily through experience. Hopefully we will come out of the most recent learning experience on January 20 much wiser. Oh so much wiser. Except for those folks who refuse to see the sun rise or watch certain news media… Happy Tuesday Pam !
