Why call it Bubbe Wisdom? Bubbe is Yiddish for grandmother. When I was growing up a Bubbe was an old woman whose domain was her kitchen. She was known for her “bubbe-meises” old wives’ tales based on rumor, myth and superstition. Bubbe was dearly loved by all but never taken very seriously by many. I have taken on the name Bubbe determined to redefine it into something more appropriate to our times.
Wisdom is the application of perception and knowledge coupled with a profound comprehension of truth resulting in the ability to consistently produce optimum conclusions with a minimum of time and energy. For the seeker in me, wisdom is the new “bubbe-meise”.
In a recent New York Times article, Judy Collins put words to my aspirations: ““We’re never going to stop moving or growing. We’re never going to stop reading, we’re never going to stop looking for younger friends. We’re committed to being fit, to being intellectually challenged, and to our art.”
