Gray Matters Regardless how one spells gray(sometimes called grey)...gray does matter. And it is a subject that extends beyond the popularity of the color or its many variations.
When it comes to how the term gray matter is defined by Merriam Webster I found: neural tissue especially of the brain and spinal cord that contains nerve-cell bodies as well as nerve fibers and has a brownish-gray color. I pondered a bit to search to see what quotes I might find to further enlighten, excite and educate me. And this one showed up:
What you think is an illusion created by your glands, your emotions
and, in the last analysis, by the content of your stomach.
That gray matter you are so proud of is like a mirror in an amusement park which
transmits to you nothing but distorted signals from reality forever beyond your grasp.
As my hair turns more gray than any other color I think back - way back - to days of my early youth. Blond hair turned to light brown and then sun lightened as more time was spent in the Southern California outdoors. I recall someone asking if I put gray highlights in my hair when I started in real estate to look older. I laughed a bit. Not quite. Over time chemicals have touched my hair at a variety of times and for numerous reasons. Now, gray dominates the hair on my head.
Does it make me more intelligent? Perhaps wiser ? More astute? No, it's not the color of hair for me or for anyone else that matters. It's a combination of things obviously different for each of us that gives one some additional credence. Experience counts for some. Results matter based on how one has used/spent that time matter obviously too. Hmm, I guess "time" will tell...
