Pay Attention When You Fall

I just had a flashback from a simple moment, yet it is one of the most significant experiences of my life. I was biking on a snow covered sidewalk in Bend, Oregon at night. Snowflakes were falling with grace. The road was slick. I fell with my bike, and when I stood up and looked behind to where I fell, there was a break in the snow where a quote was written with spray paint on the pavement. It said, "Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens."-Jimmy Hendrix.  Even though I was sore, I was happy to fall that night. The wise words were worth the tumble. I fell in the perfect spot so I could receive a beautiful message.
