Truth Is Also A Lie


Truth is not what you tell.
Truth is not what I listen.
Truth is what I feel.

Truth is not what I write.
Truth is not what you read.
Truth is what you realize.

Truth is also a lie.

    Truth is what you realise...
    there is a very thin line between truth and lie
    as always very provocative as Sandra so aptly describes...

    Very provocative. There is a very fine line between
    truth and lies. And yet they are as eternally
    opposed to one another as light is from
    darkness. Fascinating thoughts.

    Always your friend,

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
