Pearls Of Wisdom


Every author that I know,
will at some time or other,
hand out a small pearl of wisdom,
in his or her work somewhere.
It does not matter in what genre
in which they choose to write
their pen will slip one day
and a small pearl of wisdom
will spill out and come our way.
We are all creatures of choice
and authors are no exception to the rule
in that once you have written one pearl
you can guarantee
more pearls will follow.

    I think this is true. Certainly you have left for us many of your own pearls. I have always wished to live long enough to become wise (but not sure a long enough lifespan is even available, lol) . (Report) Reply
