The Names Have Been Changed…


Sometimes…I am bubbling over with ideas for a blog…Bertha…is dancing around…pointing out things to me everywhere I look…other times…I’m not sure if she’s on vacation…or taking a nap…but…nothing profound comes to mind…

Today…is one of those days…which…for some reason…reminds me of the opening for the television series from back in the day…Dragnet…I can hear Joe Friday…in his deadpan voice…saying these words…

The story you are about to hear is true. The names have been changed to protect the innocent.

I’m just not sure why…

Bertha…returns…from parts unknown…reminding me…that while it is vital to live my truth…it is just as important to protect the innocent…

And…I think I do that…I try to be very aware…especially in my writing…not to divulge someone else’s information…not with the same transparency that…Bertha…reveals mine…at least…

So…not exactly certain what this is all about…but I’m sure I will find out in the near future…and you’ll be the first to know…well…after I change the names…and maybe a detail or two…just enough to protect the innocent…
