The Bargain

This intriguing painting of Laura Marshall's is called "The Bargain". It is so textured and mysterious - so full of portent, so dense with possibility and wonder. I've been thinking for a while now about the bargains I make - what I trade off for a sense of safety, what I ransom for some idea of security. It seems our lives are riddled with secret bargains - bargains with God, bargains with our fears, bargains with our hopes.

However, the more I look at my bargains, the more they look like bluffs.
