Even a rose has their secrets

I was musing today about that which is usually hidden.

you have hidden your book bag comments--

I haven't scored two bags in decades! I love the library sale though-- I am working on a Princess Haiku tribute post--it should be up on Tuesday.

Hi, Ched,
Thanks for the comment alert; fixed it.

I believe the reason for the library score was a big event downtown; it diverted less devout readers. For years I went to the Berkeley Public Library book sales, and talk about danger and treachery. When I was a student I needed the Norton Anthologies of Literature and had to go up against book scouts. Inevitably, at some point a book fight would break out between the scouts or some clueless civilian who might inadvertently pick up a first edition of Hunter S. Thompson. The book scouts used to get on top of a building overlooking the yard the fair was in, with binoculars the night before. They camped out overnight and would go lumbering in the first second the gate opened, with their metal carts stacked with empty boxes. You would never think that a bibliophile's life could involve such high drama.

Wonderful sentence and picture
What is hidden is often the best you can find

Interesting; what is hidden can usually be seen from just looking at it from another angle.
