"Telling Truths" has a double meaning by intent. While it is a given that telling the truth is a good thing, there are times when one uncovers lies and deception and the uncovering of such makes it quite a "telling truth" about dishonesty and the nuance of "spin" and false narrative. These very "telling truths" are at epidemic proportions in our culture today. This book shares my concerns, conundrums, convictions, and confessions in a way I hope will be liberating for those who are seekers of truth. This is not to say I believe every opinion I have is without flaw, but more so , that I am a seeker of truth. And,a speaker of truth as well. Politics aside , it is my hope these words will open your mind to thought, contemplation, teachable moments, and an attitude of gratitude, We are in this together for whatever time we are blessed to grace this planet,
