Truth trumps lies.  Lies are powerful, powerful enough to come out in the lead.  So, what trumps what? Truth?  Or lies?

I wrote a post, February 16, 2013, “Fata Morgana, Men and Elusive Strength”… https://wildermanonrollingcreek.wordpress.com/2013/02/16/wildermen-and-strength

I first heard of this concept, referred to as “Phantom Morgana“, from a New Zealander, in Antarctica.   Its my understanding that “Fata Morgana” is the more correct term (the a’s are pronounced with a short o vowel sound).  “Fata Morgana” is a mirage; also defined as:

Fata Morgana gives the impression of buildings, cliffs, and such … where no such  objects exist.  A Fata Morgana is elusive, even with a plausible definition.  A Man sometimes needs to be reminded: he does have what it takes.  A man does not always own what he has been given.  Even though a man has what it takes, he may not want to embrace his giftedness. When the lies come, and they do come, the journey can be difficult, harsh, confusing. Many men buy the lie: “Unfortunately, sir, you are not good enough.”

Truth is underrated.  To make “all this “worthwhile, we … as men … need to use the gifts we have been given.  We have what it takes.  Lets do this.  Time to bust a move.
