Silicon Valley (0:49)
I just returned from a trip to Apple headquarters in Cupertino, California (my favorite 6-hour drive through the San Marcos Pass and up the 101). I was formally introduced to an Apple manager who told me that he was forbidden to talk about any Apple products. Turns out the only thing he was willing to discuss with me was employee moral and the working conditions at Apple—which was my cue to mention the atrocities that I saw growing in the men’s room, but I did not. While on the Apple campus I visited the famous Apple gift store where I played with the iWatch, picked up a cute V-neck t-shirt for the awesome wife, and an official baseball cap for me. I had to, I’m a devotee—in spite of the stinky bathrooms.

| Silicon Valley - Wisdom vs Knowledge |
Wisdom is witnessing creation occurring. Knowledge is a static picture of the past. Spon, generate, source, versus respond, regenerate, resourced. Being vs becoming.

Hi Michael :-) Bobby T said it all so well :-) and true, wisdom can not be created at man's whim. Have a beautiful evening! Rachel

| Wisdom |
Wisdom is so elusive. It’s not something you can run out and buy more of when you need it. But it’s always there 24/7 if we choose to listen. I do agree with the people who say wisdom comes from experience, and I would add that our own human mistakes offer us wisdom, if we are willing pupils. But I also agree with you that wisdom has other sources as well. Intuition and inspiration, yes, because wisdom always comes from a deep place. We have to care about people, about doing the right thing, and we must want to learn —almost desperately. We must have sensitivity to know what is needed that is not yet provided, and what would make the world a better place and be profitable too.

I too have visited the gift shop at Apple, settling for a tshirt or two. I was surprised that they do not have any tours of the facility. Very secretive indeed. People watching and listening to languages from all over the world was fun, and it was so obvious that Apple has global fans. I'm one of them.
