Shall we all adorn robes of gilded gold and protective eye ware as we scan through images of shiny, reflective, and beautiful inspirations. We gild to heighten objects appearance, a shroud of superiority or a priceless array of heirlooms.
Are you familiar with ‘gild the lily’? This idiom is simply referring to us monkeys. It means to cover something that is already so spectacular that any addition is truly superfluous.
Although… gilded can also delve into trickery and play with our sensibilities. Deceptively endearing, approachable and forthcoming, but rotten and utterly empty within.
Gilded could be the opportunity you’ve been looking for to work on those metal sheens. Just located my gold body glitter, so I’m all set for gilded Sunday, September 21st.
