A New Day is Dawning

On the wall of my office, I hung up a new framed painting on Sunday. It is an original piece that was painted just for me. A girl with auburn hair, wearing a green and blue dress and holding a traditional magician's wand, is summoning a rabbit from a hat sitting on a small table. The rabbit's ears poke out of the hat. However, from the black brim of the hat, as well as from inside the hat and from under the table, subtle tendrils of living shadow coalesce and reach out from the darkness.

What do I see in this painting? What does it mean to me?

A hell of a lot, to be sure. More soon, friends.
