FINDING CALM IN THE MIDST OF CHANGE

Truer than True

January 14, 2013

What is truer than the truth? The story.” —​ ​Jewish saying*

 

 

I hadn’t intended to use this photograph. A split second of awesome beauty. Captured because I fed my dogs.

 

Just then.

 

The iPad on the kitchen counter. Earth rotating one zillionth of a degree. The moon and the colors more brilliant.

 

Just then.

 

I was thinking of another quote. The perfect one appeared instead.

 

Everyone’s truth is a story. Dependent on infinite other stories.

 

And you thought you were alone? Share your story. See what happens.

 

*Isabel Allende, 2007 TED talk
