586. January 14, 2012….The last gulp of a good epiphany…not hard to swallow…..

“Anyone who doesn’t take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either.” – Albert Einstein

the term “Double Speak”….not to be confused with…. “Double Talk”…is everywhere…Double Speak is designed to deliberately disguise…distort…make the truth appear less unpleasant than it really is… it shadows the nature of the truth…minimizes it….and of the many results it creates a level of ambiguity…that makes the pack of lies….the infidelity…the theft…misrepresentation…deception…(Fill in the blank)__________….all seem  a very small blip of credibility deficit on the character radar…

Double Speak does have its advantages…well single advantage…it will continually support the person lacking character…and credibility…for as long as they … say what they don’t mean and mean what they don’t say…(example of Double Speak)…

we’ve all done our share of Double Speak….but it’s much like a broken toilet….there is never any conversation or complaint about the toilet…until…it doesn’t work…while it’s working…it is doing exactly what it is designed to do…and everybody is happy…much like the Truth which is the closets antonym to Double Speak I could find…when we’re all working from that position…(Truth)….even if parts of it are  unpleasant…there is at least some grip that allows us to know that when we speak the truth enough…we become credible..believable and can be trusted…and don’t live our life as a pussy….

I am most fortunate …that things….that shouldn’t happen…don’t happen….that moment of …. “whew…glad that didn’t happen“….engulfs me…gets my heart racing a bit…like the end of a good…bad dream….lately epiphanies have been like a spectacular  summer meteor shower…I’m in the middle of the road…in a comfortable folding chair…a bowel of garlic cheese popcorn and Marble Brewery Citra beer in hand…watching the show….

and at the age I am…I like that a good epiphany is much like the last sip of a fabulous wine…unforgettable….

“Many people wait all their lives for the opportunity to be good in their own way” – Freidrich Nietzsche
