Not trying to argue, but, anybody makes a living with a dynamite truck, better be at least SORT OF smart and/or SORT OF lucky.

Anybody drives a dynamite truck, and claims to be guided by Invisible Voices, ummm, kinda scary.

But if you mean you are guided by good advice and good examples, from other actual people and books and instructions that come with products and tools and EXPLOSIVES, Good For You.

A couple of times a week I take part in cards [a form of rummy] at the yocal seniors center.  I noticed that a couple of the guys seem to win more than some others, so I asked  .... one of the guys said he figured the game was about 80% luck and 20% brains.  If I eschew the discard pile and pick a particularly good card from the deck, I've been known to observe: "Man, how did I get so smart, all of a sudden?"

Deeper than intuition? Where does it come from? I have asked myself the same question when I write a song. Marty Stuart once proclaimed; " came down on a magic carpet"? You would think we could figure these things out after all these years. When anyone comes up with the answer, please let us know.

Some folks say it comes from the collective unconscious (subconscious) which is connected to the mind of Providence.

A lot of my "guidance" in life came from working on various boats on land or sea from my people.Fishing was pretty much everything here and we were connected to all aspects of that enterprise.
I was guided in how to find the fish and lobsters,rig the correct gear for their capture and maintain the boat and equipment.
Much of my guidance in music came from those same people.

Here,guidance is passing down what previous generations have discovered... to make life easier for those coming up.

I was lucky enough to marry a smart lady... and I'm smart enough to listen, and willing enough to accept her guidance (?) .... at least some of the time.    wink

.... or as Red Green's Men's Prayer has it:  "I'm a man, but I can change, if I have to... I guess."

I think Al’s guidance comes from Liz.
