unearthing reluctant bones.

to shallow harbors
quibble over niggling nits.
I'll tell you
like it isn't.

I've seen cherished beliefs crash and burn. This business of truly knowing the Truth about oneself is a never-ending challenge. As for divining the truth about others? It's a matter of faith. "
- Jonas Dikinis
"...we should all aspire to the truth, but we should be realistic when it comes to our abilities. Truths are not cold facts and the simple - okay, not very simple - truth is that everything I do is a consequence of everything I have done before. We're constantly course correcting, a degree here, a degree there. Truth is also and assemblage, something we construct over years. The best we can end up with is something that resembles the truth in just the same way a photograph resembles the sitter, an aspect of the sitter at least, at that point in time. In that respect truth is like memory. There are old truths in fact probably the ony way to identify any truth is after the fact which is why the sculptor or the painter steps back from his work from time to time because when he is involved in it he is too close to the truth to see it for what it is." - Jim Murdoch
"...and that's the truththththth!" - Lily Tomlin, as Edith Ann
...leaving town now. I appreciate all those who have stuck with me and my very unpoemlike daily offerings. I appreciate all your careful readings and comments. Don't know if poetry is 'my thing,' but connecting with y'all certainly is! Please click on the Jim and Jonas links. You won't be disappointed (that is, if you are interested in The Truth).
