The Truth of the Matter

I find sometimes
That my chain of thought
Though consciously followed,
Resembles a dream
In its convolutions.
The links are often
Hard to discern but
Inevitably lead me
Down a path that flows
Naturally to a point at which
The disparate pieces
Rejoin in a stream
Leading to conclusions
Beyond the expected.
The interwoven threads
Display interconnectedness
And interdependence that
Create a tapestry of
Complexity escaping
Apparent solution.
Is it a paralysis due to
Failure of sifting the
Relevant from that which
Is immaterial?
Or, is it merely the
Truth of the matter
Revealing that in myself
There is insufficient wisdom
And that I must look
To higher sources
For conclusion?

Perhaps you need to blog for awhile to find the thread to the things.

A friday the 13th piece on how things link together. Where does luck play into it?

Interesting Mother Pie. It had not crossed my mind that it was the 13th -- or at least not in the context of lucky/unlucky. In spite of my desire to attribute many things to luck, I've come to the conclusion that there is really only "chance" or "hard work". Sometimes I'm just too lazy (or temporarily overwhelmed) to chase the threads completely through!
