Wisdom


Doubtful beet man with foolish, reckless bats. (click for larger image)

I turned to the words of Bertrand Russell for some thoughts on wisdom.
A lack of wisdom on the part of our leaders and the failure to listen to those who do possess it have divided and damaged this country, possibly beyond repair.
Russell also had this to say, and I believe it perfectly describes the criminals who are currently in charge of the U.S. government.

"Are we to continue entrusting our affairs to men without sympathy, without knowledge, without imagination and having nothing to recommend them except methodical hatred and skill in vituperation?"

What gorgeous, vibrant colors to create your fanciful image! Of course, it goes beyond fancy when the viewer reads the Russell quote and your explanation. Well done -
