When I was about to gold-leaf the very last pyramid of the painting, I flipped through the pages of the Monastery Gold-leaf booklet to find the last piece of gold-leaf. There were 25 pieces of gold-leaf, and 25 pyramids to gold-leaf. So the last pyramid was also the last piece of gold leaf. I flipped through the semi-transparent orange pages of the pink booklet and found the last piece of gold and on the very last piece of gold there was a tiny surprise waiting for me. This beautiful little shiny blue square. I thought it was the loveliest surprise in the world, and considered it a gift from the heavenly angels. Amen.
