If time is the currency of life, you can consider the moments you spend exploring The Docks to be a wise investment in your future. Personally and professionally, you’ll find idea inducing content on every dock.
At Wisdom Harbour, when a “classic” is recorded, certain old English words are replaced by their modern equivalent. The meaning of every paragraph in every story remains the same. The book is, however, delivered to the listener in an understandable way. So…sit back, close your eyes, and listen with your imagination!

In Other Words
This dock features short videos that are used to expose the meaning in a wordy piece of literature or history we still recognize, but have honestly never understood. A part of the original piece is “performed.” Then, those words are delivered in today’s language and explained…with a few smart remarks added for good measure!
Just for Fun
The happiest place in the harbour, here you’ll find the old and the new. Original material, old favorites, and forgotten classics–hilarious, video and audio unloaded from the Humor Barge and delivered to this dock especially—and regularly—just for you!
The standards are high. Massive professional accomplishment is required to be featured on this dock. And though they have selected material just for you, it is really the musician we want you to meet!
Peace of Wisdom
This is the archive of the twice-weekly emails sent to the inboxes of Wisdom Harbour members. Delivered in the morning, there is a Wednesday Peace of Wisdom and a Weekend Peace of Wisdom. Each is a short bit of wise perspective about a single topic to help you through your week.
A sampling of various podcasts—targeting specific episodes—are gathered here for your perusal. Also included in this line-up is every episode of The Professional Noticer, a podcast by your Harbormaster, Andy Andrews.

This carefully maintained dock holds a growing collection of the written word. Here, you’ll find thought provoking articles, unique stories, private letters, personal notes, deep musings, and occasionally, even poetry. Much of the content here has never been shared publicly. For whatever reason, some pieces were tucked away by the writer for years. Now, it’s all available for you.
