IMG_0957

We live in all we seek. The hidden shows up in too-plain sight. It lives captive on the face of the obvious ­– the people, events, and things of the day – to which we sophisticated children have long become oblivious. What a hideout: Holiness lies spread and borne over the surface of time and stuff like color.
