  1. I really enjoy your monthly quote posts. You have some that are new to me every month. I really like the Aesop quote as well. There are as many sides to truth as there are realities that we each live in.

    1. Hi Paula: Thanks. 🙂 I believe we each have our own truths, everyone’s truth is different but not any less valid. In that I believe more with the Aesop quote than with the others; that the truth has more than one side…I think there can be a million sides.
      I wanted to show many viewpoints and let everyone come up with their own meaning.
