Truth is Fluid

This is part of the series Garden of Truth.

I started out on social media asking people about their truths.
Truth is Fluid, is one of the ideas that was mentioned.

Truth can change, depending on circumstances, information you receive, events that take place. Plus then we all have our own filters, the things that have happened to us color all that we see. So truth will take different forms, even for the same person.

I used water and the circle as the symbolism for water. The center piece can be removed; this piece will fold in on itself circling through the four sides. All to remind us that truth can be fluid when seen in different lights.
