Where is George

11AM - Where is George?
It is 11am and I am still in my PJs.  Just ate a bowl of cereal with a banana on top.  Just blogging to you about what is going on this morning.  Why am I soooooo late?

I have been re-reading a book.  My youngest son gave me a present in December, 1994.  The present is the book, "Siddhartha", by Herman Hesse.  Siddhartha is a young man who searches for wisdom.  And on the way he suffers greatly.  The story shows how it is necessary to suffer in order to learn.  Is there another way?  A way to gain wisdom without suffering?

If my own life is to provide an answer to this question, I would state that suffering must come before wisdom. I have been struggling almost every single day lately with the challenge of my suffering.  And the thing that comes to me is to be thankful for my suffering.  Thankful that in that knowing, that understanding, lies my destiny.
