“Every path has its puddle.” English Proverb
This is a simple truth. On reflection, it seems I want truth to be complex, or at least I see it as being complex. (Maybe because I want to have “figured it out?) However, it occurs to me that most truths, real TRUTHS, are only a few words, and can be stated in a single sentence – without dashes, commas, or semi-colons. If it takes more than that to state a truth, it is suspect. And of course, I note that sentence has a comma in it (though I am not sure it was needed).
