I know how to bring up children (especially other people’s).
I know better than any politician what needs to be done in a crisis.
And I know exactly what to do when you’re on lockdown.
That is indeed knowledge. It’s clear in my head. But it hasn’t come from experience. In fact, I know very little about bringing up children as my sole experience of this relates to two individuals only (with whom I did quite a good job, in my humble opinion).
In politics, I have in fact no experience at all, as I’ve never actually been involved in that.
And as for lockdown:
I had a fertile imagination about what it would be like but until recently no actual experience whatsoever!
This is what Morpheus said to Neo in the film Matrix:
“There’s a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.”
What about you? Which paths are you walking during this lockdown?
