Telling the Truth isn’t the same as “the truth of the matter,” NOT usually…
I suppose a better way to say it is that the Truth and truth aren’t necessarily one and the same.
Clearly Truth and truth are concepts I’ve danced round the floor with more than a few gazillion times in my Life.
Mark Twain had acquaintance with my BEfuddlement round Truth/truth, If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.
I’ve found this a simple measure and a wondrously wise principle for Life, too.
These words from Dumbledore in J.K. Rowlings’ Harry Potter series, “The truth." Dumbledore sighed. "It is a beautiful and terrible thing, and should therefore be treated with great caution.” highlight the peculiousness of the fence upon which I’ve tried to sit to understand what is and is NOT Truth.
While I actually BElieve that I am NOT good at lying, that does NOT mean I am stellar in my T/truth-telling skills.
And yet I can still look to just yesterday to see where I massaged and managed the Truth to make it more palatable.
What is Truth for me is often difficult to reveal to another.
Maya Angelou clearly understood this, There's a world of difference between truth and facts. Facts can obscure truth.
At least she seems to…
I love you, Currie
