By Linda Donaldson
A slippery concept “slanted truth,” the theme for our upcoming issue of the PSB Literary Journal.
I’ll admit, “a little white lie” was the first thing that came to my mind – those polite statements that omit our real feelings or opinions. Off-the-cuff edits of the real story, deflecting the presumed judgment of listeners or readers.
Then I began reading the submissions and saw more subtlety.
- The unfolding of truth that occurs over decades.
- Slanted truth read between-the-lines of spoken dialogue in thoughts unexpressed.
- Realizations woven together by parallel experiences in different generations.
- Memories as seen through the prism of circumstances not perceived at the time.
