I already shared Alex's profound thoughts she scribbled on a hotel notepad. Here is tonight's wisdom:
Living things around you are all parts of a beautiful painting. Everything has a purpose, a meaning in this world, a function, a reason. So take care of the beautiful art. Does an artist just dump his masterpiece in the trash? No. He puts it somewhere safe from things that will hurt it. So protect the painting of art that is the world.
Who is more dumb: the dumb person or the person who follows him? It is the person who follows. He makes a dumb decision to follow the dumb person, which makes him dumb in the process. A smart person objects to the dumb one. The dumb person isn't smart, but the person who follows what he does is even dumber.
And once she discovered I was posting her genius on the blog, she took up the Trail of Genius where she left off in Kentucky (and please do feel free to comment; she has requested feedback!):
Leave a trail of genius. When you leave a trail of genius, you help others think better. You make the world a better place, one thing at a time. It can also prove to the world you are intelligent in mind and heart. When you leave a trail of wisdom, others find it and use it to do good and right things. Those who are pure of mind become great. Those who are kind will be rewarded. They will be rewarded, not suddenly, but they will be rewarded. Those who are foolish will not be great but a fool, so leave a trail to your genius.
