The ambiguous identity of Truth and Bears…

Readings at Anara practice 8/15/2012

The truth is like the bear.  Is it a gentle beast, a model for the stuffed animal children love?  Or is it a vicious carnivore that will rip you to shreds if you turn your back on it?  The answer is that it’s both.

–Robert Morning

“We are the sum of our efforts to change who we are.  Identity is no museum piece sitting stock-still in a display case, but rather the endlessly astonishing synthesis of the contradictions of everyday life.” — Eduardo Galeano

“Authenticity depends entirely on being faithful to the essential ambiguity of experience” 
—John Berger
