It’s Time (Chapter 9)

“Small voice, I’ve been thinking

about wishing and lying. Lying’s worse, right?”

“Well,” small voice says, “They’re both ways

of turning away from the truth of what is.”

“Yeah,” I say, “but wishing can be

a starting point for making things better.”

“Hmm,” small voice says. “And lying?”

“Unless it’s to save someone’s life or something,

lying gets things off to a bad start, ” I say.

“So how things start affects how they end?” small voice asks.

“Yes,” I say. 

Small voice nods.

“Are you just trying not to have the last word?” I ask.

Small voice nods.

“Well,” I say, “You’re making progress too.”
