Everything comes in layers.
New technology builds on old technology. New buildings come from old. Regeneration is everywhere taking the best of the old and combining to make the new.
There’s no need to smooth over the cracks, or hide what’s feared, since a new partnership of memories can be formed that work in harmony with the old. A new layer awkwardly placed is a mental stepping stone onward and forward. Nothing is smooth. Nothing is perfect. The fabric of everything is enriched simply with a layer of something different.
Layers speak of experience and wisdom.
I like layers.
