Promised fortunes


Once there were only the  knowledge and worshipping  of the wind and the sun and people thought they knew everything. They lived as though their wisdom was complete. And then we knew more and understood that knowledge  never ends. Yet still we lived with wisdom which to us seemed  wholly complete while infinitely lacking. Herein lies the dilemma of man and the truth of Socrates who said "all I know is that I don't know anything at all" perhaps therefore he suggested "know yourself" above all other knowing yet other sorts of knowing of other things enabled us to know about ourselves. 

Within this catch twenty two of a cycle we found our idle places in the whirlwind of life. Only to be temporarily moved by riches such as love and passion. Most times life wasn't a loud bell ringing away but it was like the silent flow of a sand clock. Yet still we wait hoping that wind will catch us and lift us to heights imagined and promised through out the ages.
