I was going to blog about cats.
I didn't, though, because of my pathetic compulsion to try to be original, so I went with something I'm hoping the other 1000+ bloggers participating in this challenge aren't blogging on.

Here's a definition to start us off:
1. Frankness or sincerity of expression; openness.
2. Freedom from prejudice; impartiality.
Now isn't that nicer than Truth, with it's bald, blunt edges, its self-serving passion for its own perceived purity?
Candor implies kindness, an acceptance of the other, a way of being that is true- but sincerely, gently true, an openness that accepts as much as it gives.
I've always preferred candor to truth.
Candidly, that's the truth.
