How do I explore the word 'hidden'? I ask myself, "What things are hidden?" Treasure. Treasure is hidden, else it is wealth. Motives. Motives are hidden lest we give up advantage. Truth. Truth lies hidden because to tell the truth exposes us to the judgment of others. Meaning. Meaning is obscured for the same reason, for to understand the meaning is to know the truth. Love. Love lies within, in our most secret places, wrapped in layers of obscured meaning, colored truths and camouflaged motives because love is the greatest treasure we own. When we spend it, we are exposed.

The new art class started last night. I have started the underpainting. I will post a picture tonight, both here and in New At Art.
I still struggle to get over this cold I caught on the way to England. I get a little better each day. There is so much I have to catch up on - I have to get to Blick's to pick up an item I purchased, I have to go to the 'phone store' to replace this crappy cell phone we just bought and I absolutely HAVE TO sort my pictures from England and start getting them ready to post up here. And, of course, there's all of the stuff at work that piled up while I was gone. Other than that, things are fine, just fine. I am so glad to be home. Among friends. Like you.
