"At sixty, I know little more about wisdom than I did at thirty,
but I know a great deal more about folly."
-Mason CooleyFolly: a foolish action, practice, idea, etc.; absurdity....as defined by Webster's Dictionary. Not one to complain....whine...whimper.....I once again got up at the crack of dawn to take my daughter to yet another form of athletic practice. I slipped into the closet to put on my standard summer uniform (t-shirt, running shorts, and flip flops). Complete my morning ritual of brushing my hair and teeth, preparing some form of highly unhealthy breakfast and loading my car with all the appropriate sporting gear to round off the day. Approximately three hours later as I stood in line at the grocery store, I looked down to see what my feet were telling the world. In all the movement of the morning, numerous people I had spoken to, my family I had seen multiple times before leaving home....I noticed my feet were telling me the same message my head has been telling me for about 60 days....you are inside and out full of "folly". Yes, I had on two different flip flops...and had proudly worn them for all of humanity to see. Now, I am not 60 years of age....but, I'm on my way to full blown connoisseur of "folly".
This is my latest project....obviously the product of "folly"....and sitting in the parking lot of an athletic place waiting on my daughter. The "folly" will soon be pieced together.....keep watching.
