This Is My Truth​.​.​.​Tell Me Yours

from A Crack Where The Light Gets In by Steve Lawson

/

lyrics

This is one of my favourite quotes EVER, and when I first encountered it, realised that it was pretty much my entire model for interaction with anyone. An exchange of truth that acknowledges the finite nature of perspective.

Contrary to the thinking of most 90s indie kids, it was coined by the Manic Street Preachers - it was quoted by them, but it originates with the great Labour politician Nye Bevan. He was also the founder of the NHS. An extraordinary man.

If we’re friends on Facebook, you’ll know that I’m pretty forthright in throwing out ideas, opinions and perspectives. I love wrestling with ideas, exploring new ways of thinking and looking. My patience runs out with people who try to rationalise their own selfishness, but for the most part, a mutual exploration of the nature of truth, and the perspectives that inform our understanding of it, is pretty much my favourite thing. It’s part of the Theoria, and it is tested in Praxis. This - the sum total of my musical output - is the part of my truth that doesn’t fit in words. These words are an attempt to put it in a context.

Tell me yours.
