A Simple Man’s Creed Byron Hoot Wake not to thoughts already formed; beware the thinking of yesterday as sufficient for today. What has been is never adequate for what is. Do not believe you are who you were. Remember “I am that I am” the only sufficiency for change which is the one word refrain for the blues of the world which cannot be expunged without losing love. Recall: wisdom is what knowledge has been, aged to that divine intoxicant fit only for the most divinely human among us; which means it’s not for everyone unfortunately, but that’s how it’s always been. Excuse me while I ride the echo of this morning light out.
