Darn, sometimes I hate the truth.


Found this quote while reading Beach Music...great book by the way... "I had recently become acutely aware that mistranslation, mistakes of emphasis, and inevitability of a flawed interpretation of an experience could lead to an imperfect view of things. "

...so I guess scripture is not the only place to find admonition. My reality is still just my reality and tho I am quite certain it is remarkably close to an honest assessment of fact (and I think the Supreme court would back me up on this :) it remains just one side of the story. Ok, I 'll give you that. And I probably have not made it clear that tho I find it unacceptable to dump ones garbage onto another human being, I do recognize the guilt and torment that this individual must be going thru...I know that their lashing out has much more to do with their own demons than anything I have done. Still hurts, still planning on keeping my distance...but underneath it all, I do empathize.

The actions of the world are governed by perceptions, not reality.
