Friedrich Eduard Meyerheim's 19th-century painting of three children playing hide and seek in a forest.
"Life's joy is masked by emotions. When the mask falls, you will inhale deeply and see how beautiful it all really is." -- Dr Chris Baker
Remember playing hide-and-seek?
Remember how you could hide behind a tree, in plain sight?
In your moments of sadness, fear, confusion, grief, desperation, loneliness, anger and worry, the preciousness of life is hiding in plain sight.
Life’s joy is masked by emotions. When the mask falls, you will inhale deeply and see how beautiful it all really is.
And when you once again see how beautiful and precious it is, even the emotions that belied the beauty will illuminate the sparkling treasures of your life.
You’re “It!” Ready or not, here I come!
