T is for Truth"Is that a true story, mister?"
The most oft-asked question which comes my way after I've shared a story is, "Is it true?" Of course, it's children who nearly always ask the question. I suppose adults have grown up too long believing that "telling stories" is akin to "telling lies". Or they know me well-enough to know to suspend their disbelief when I tell a story.
But the question of veracity is an important one, deserving of our attention. "Is the story true?"
Of course, I believe, as the Jewish philosopher Martin Buber once noted, that "all stories are true." If we live with stories long enough they will reveal their truth to us. What is true for you about the story?
So next time someone asks you if the story's true, peel the story back and let them taste it for themselves.
