    Perfect!!!

    It's not only today's aphorism, Marty, I love all of them. You're by far the smarterst man I know (well, I don't know much of you, but still, you're the smartest man I've been reading these days) - I just love coming here.

    Thank you so much for sharing.

    PS.: Question: How old are you? If I was to judge by the knowledge, I'd say sth around 60 - don't ask me why. I don't know why we're often attributing knowledge to older people!!! You could be 35, 40, that's pretty young to me. =)

    Take care and keep smiling, sweetie.

  6. The more tactile your approach, the closer you orbit to reality.

  7. A blind man may not be able to see but he is not blind in understanding. Unfortunately, some of us are.

    :) Thanks NP

  13. No matter what, we have the ability to find our way.

  14. Timeless. Yes if only we could get out of that narrow way of finding ourselves. Sigh. But then again wisdom will teach us a lot. If ever we get one...or if we even get to that stage.

  18. Another classic Marty, we are all just struggling to find our way through the darkness.

  19. Marty, must our cane be pointed down with the soft "tap! tap!" to clear our path or thrust onward in silence to say, "I'm marching on, make way or you might be trampled upon"? Joke only!

  20. This is call :"Seeing through the mind of Perception"

  21. Blind also see with his sense of touch.

  22. We are all "blind" in that we see through the intermediary of the cane or the sense organ, and not directly. Yet we are blind to the fact that we are blind, and this is the deepest blindness...when blindness is believed to be sight. Analogously, when a lie is believed to be true, that is delusion, another kind of blindness. Thank you for this penetrating aphorism n.p.

  25. I hate to dump cold water on this beautiful thought, but I think he just fumbles around blindly.
