Distorting mirror

You imagine the carefully pruned, shaped thing that is presented to you is truth.
That is just what it isn't. The truth is improbable, the truth is fantastic;
it's in what you think is a distorting mirror that you see the truth.
Jean Rhys

Marvelous photo. I could stare and stare at it. And, yes, the quote has some truth in it!
