 Is HONESTY
an act of will;
 does it require a person
working hard
to refrain
from doing
the wrong thing?
 Or is it an act of
GRACE,

 all the way
-among the
 unequivocally
 HONEST,
there was no increase

-you don’t do that,
it’s wrong,
PERIOD.

NAKED TRUTH,

IS

MESSY

and

BEAUTIFUL:

HEARTFIRE

COURAGE

and

SEXY.
