Wisdom Comes With Age
I used to think
my family was crazy when I was younger. I didn't realize the wisdom
they had about pretty much everything. When we are young, we think we
know everything. We think we don't need any advice from anyone,
especially our parents. Now that I am older, I realize that wisdom
truly does come with age. A person who is 45 has lived 45 years and has
been through so much more than a person who is 25 years old. They have
seen things that a younger person hasn't. They have had experiences
that only comes from age. So if you are a teenager, it is okay to listen
to your elders. It is okay to get some advice, because more than
likely they will not steer you the wrong way.
One of my paintings is
of a Farm with a cow and duck. It is primitive looking but it brings
back the simple days when people grew their own foods and milked their
own cows. Times were harder back then, which brought on much more
experiences. It made people stronger, reliable and more respectful.
Those were simpler days when people sat on the porch and enjoyed the
peace and quite. So I hope this painting inspires you to try to respect
the simple things in life.
