A Quick Daily Study: Stanza 28

I needed to get back to this study after a defeating week at work. I felt myself around the kindred and an actual person that mattered. I got to talk with people about Asatru, them, and myself and Y’all know that’s a HUGE deal for me (being social). Then I go back to my toxic work environment and everything just went downhill for me. I’m trying to keep up with my writing and pushing myself to not give up on my 365 Day project because it’s one of the few things that I can control. That I can do with my own vision in mind and no one can take it away or the moment of completion away. So here we are at Stanza 28:

Pocket Translation:
He thinks himself wise, who can ask
questions and converse also; conceal his
ignorance no one can, because it circulates
among men.

Chisholm:
Wise seems he who knows
how to ask and answer.
What goes about among men,
cannot be hidden from men.

I feel that this stanza is speaking of holding a conversation and being able to ask and answer questions with knowledge. We all learn from holding conversations and asking questions but we also pass on the knowledge we may have about the subject. The last two lines are a bit confusing for me but OTOOHGs suggests that you can’t hide information from people. Once it’s out-it’s out. Then wouldn’t it come full circle back to the first two lines? That how I take it.

It’s Thursday and I’m going to get ready for work but first a satisfying breakfast. Happy Valentines Y’all!
