If there's any certainty in life, it may be this: life is uncertain.  Some people with truly dire medical prognoses recover, perhaps for reasons we'll never understand.  You never know.  Some stellar athletes are labeled "can't miss" and then, well, miss.  You never know.  Some students are mired in the academic basement and, to everyone's amazement, blossom and move to the head of the class.  You never know.  Wisdom, it seems, is accepting life's inevitable uncertainty, and learning from the lessons it can teach us about how to live, as we hear from B.J. Whitehouse. 


B.J. Whitehouse is a semi-retired music teacher, choral director, composer, and singer who lives with his wife Christine in Jamestown.
