When I was little I loved to play hide-and-go-seek. I don’t remember what the appeal was exactly; maybe it was the challenge to try and stay quiet or finding the perfect hiding spot. Either way, I wasn’t really good at the game. The thrill and excitement got the best of me and I usually started giggling and I was always the first person to be found.

Although staying hidden has always been a challenge for me, my curiosity of hidden objects and issues has always been a constant in my life. The saying goes, “curiosity killed the cat;” and with the amount of technology readily available today, our curiosity can be satisfied in seconds. But what about the answers not found on the Internet? Like hidden gender roles, food label censorship or buried delicacies? This is where Klipsun steps in to fill the gaps. In this issue Klipsun strives to discover objects and issues that have been hidden from plain sight.

There are always new things to be discovered, some more hidden than others or less hidden than we may think or want. I hope these stories satisfy any new or old curiosities; and magnify the hidden things in life.
