We are hushed

Titian has Joseph hush the crowd. How good it is sometimes at Christmas. A father concerned about a baby.

A painter who thinks about such a thing. He knows the whole of the story of the life to come and go. He thinks of the baby. Tomorrow is later. For this time, we hush and let it be in peace.

Joseph was a wiser man than tradition gives him credit for.

When I see this painting I am in awe of the man. He knew the baby wasn't his, and it made no difference to him. Look at him protecting the baby! You're right, he is some wise man.

Happy to see you, AOW. My best wishes for you and family.
