..all tied up..

I've taken up a new hobby: learning how to draw Celtic knots.

Of all the things on my to-do list (sewing skirts, homemade moon pads, self-GYN exam, belly dance, archery, sword fighting, etc..), I pounced instead on something for which I had no conscious intention. Something random, you might say (though I did have a short-lived spark of interest in it several years ago). After glimpsing George Bain's instructional manual on Celtic art at the library, I decided to give it a go.

the hidden truth

In darkness, one can completely disappear. On the other hand, darkness allows complete self-exposure. Out of the (spot)light, we are free to be all that we are - everything, and nothing.

Hiding has been a dominant theme in my life, and perhaps that's been the subconscious reason behind my attraction to darkness, night, fog, long sleeves and jeans. But one weekend in late September proved to be a turning point.
