Welcome to my new blog, Shared Wisdom!  I am honored to have a space in the cyber reality to share my experiences and in that sharing be able to connect more fully with myself and you!  Thanks for reading! In setting out to create a blog called “Shared Wisdom” I began to realize that the name itself carries weight.  Sharing Wisdom is different than sharing ideas or even sharing thoughts.  Wisdom is a natural creation of intentional living, or unintentional mishaps and bafoonery.  Let’s face it, some of our wisest moments come from walking blindly into situations and...
