In Zen and the Art of Poker there is a line about how what the author learned about poker and thought worthy of putting in a book changes over time.

That brought to mind a line from the Rock Opera "Jesus Christ, Superstar." Where Pilate asked Jesus, "We both have truths. Are mine the same as yours?"

Life shapes what each one of us knows as true. My truths are not the same as anyone else's. Yes, there are two people on my friends list who had a parent that dealt with Alz. and I share some truths with them, but they didn't play on the shore of Lake Michigan growing up, the source of other truths for me.

I could go on and list things that connect me with everyone on my friends list, but the list that is unique to me is even bigger than the ones I have in common with others.

Funny, now I'm reminded about another quote that came from one of my troubled periods. "The truth is just a lie that hasn't been uncovered yet." The world is flat. No, the world is round and the center of the Universe. No, we are but one planet circling around the edge of a galaxy of other star systems.

We all have our unique truths and they can and will change over time.

Ah, not really sure where to take this rambling from here so ...
