I was accused of selling that today.
Now, I tend to have rather thick skin and I know my stuff well enough to not be too bothered by such comments. But still, it sticks... "like a splinter in your mind" to continue quoting the film.
But I'm not interested in smoke and mirrors. There's too much of that already.
And that's the problem. The problem is not that I am purposely deceiving people with my amazing skill with smoke and mirrors, but that there is far too much of something else:
Haze and fog.
Perhaps you have been gifted with incredible clarity and can discern all truth right out--which would be super impressive if it wasn't so annoying <smile>--but if you're anything like me then you and I both see but dimly.
The haze and fog of life disrupts my ability to see everything exactly as it is. And that is why I'm still learning. Because I don't know it all, and I don't plan to either. Not that it wouldn't be nice to be omniscient...
