both on the same kinder playground
under the same spring sun
sitting on the same wooden bench
each sharing a complaint with the other
one says that she is so hot that she is sweating
the other says that she so cold that she is freezing
both are sincere in describing what they are feeling
each accepts what the other is saying
and listens without judgement.
“truth can be stated in a thousand different ways,
yet each one can be true.”
“in the case of news, we should always wait for the sacrament of confirmation.”
finding summer simplicity
“truth is ever to be found in simplicity,
and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things.”
“the path isn’t a straight line, it’s a spiral.
you will come back to things you think you understood
and see deeper truths.”
“truth is like the sun. you can shut it out for a time, but it ain’t goin’ away.”
grandie j, age 5, believes in science.
“by denying scientific principles, one may maintain any paradox.”
