1.not false or copied; genuine; real: an authentic antique.
2.having the origin supported by unquestionable evidence; authenticated; verified: an authentic document of the Middle Ages; an authentic work of the old master.
3. entitled to acceptance or belief because of agreement with known facts or experience; reliable; trustworthy

The dictionary definitions of authentic get a little stuffy if you ask me. They point to antiques, to documents of the Middle Ages, to works by the old masters, etc. While these are all true examples, they don’t hit the mark for me.

When I think about the word authentic, I think of something that comes from the heart. If you always consult honestly with your heart, whatever you do or say will be authentic… right?

On another note…. It’s Toooona Tuesday over here. So, we hope everybody has a great day.

hugs, Lou, Bugsy and Knuckles
