The root
of “wisdom”
is “weid-,”
“to see.”

When we realize empathy,
we connect
our experience
with that
of another.

we did not know
to connect.

And it is in that instant,
we come to see
we previously
did not.

If Steve is right
that creativity
is coming to see something
could not
by connecting
then perhaps realizing empathy
is creativity
imbued with the wisdom
of love.

To Become One

To become one
is not
to be
the same.

No two “things”
can ever be
the same.

Especially so
if you consider
their locations.

To become one
can be
to become one
of a new kind.

Just as two rings
can become
one chain.
