From the book:


“All of my lies are true”

In today’s day and age you might think a saying like that was attributed to “45” or Putin. In my Father’s day he might have imagined it was Jack Benny or Groucho Marx. When I was growing up I could easily have credited Casey Stengel or Yogi Berra.

Now that I have grandchildren, I have begun to embrace my inner Seanchaí. I am become “the keeper of words.” What I have sown in my springtime, I am reaping in my autumn. I have come to cuddle with these warm words, on a cold night by the fireside.

When the wood crackles and the mind travels, a story tells itself. Truth, stretches to reveal something new. I have learned to follow each lie where ever it may lead in search of its truth.

“All of my lies are true?”

~

You must grow your self

No matter how tall your parent

Time, is the story teller.
