... I will have to say that I have waited too long to meditate on the story of my life
and have crossed the border into old old age where I simply cannot think straight.
Somewhere between my possibly misremembered conversation with Professor
Erikson and a moon walk fantasy-memory, I will need to draw a line. Not easy. A
series of lectures on the art of memoir held at the New York Public Library was
called Inventing the Truth. Cute, but they were also on to something important
with that ...

The media today invent lies all the time, and they offer them as true. However,
with the following proviso, it is possible to invent truly: if, when you put yourself in
the position of other people, you take into account the place, the season, attitudes
