Spread #73- Layering October 20, 2009

Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.

Spread 73- LayeringWhat you see is not always what you get…in fact it’s never what you get…there are always ‘the layers’…the moment unceasingly laying itself upon the past moment…the present day upon yesterday, the words I speak now upon the words I spoke earlier…new events steadily hide old ones…this thought holds sadness for me…as it also yields new opportunities for renewal. Layers on my mind…layers should be on all our minds as we gently remind ourselves of the layers of others…as we create new layers in our life pages…as we go about our day.

Yet another amazing spread of layers! This definatly gives so much to think about… I tend to think of layers of people as giving them character and depth, hm as I think about it, it could go for art too?!

Much luck in Washington @ Journalfest and take care of yourself and get lots of rest. Your going to knock their socks off! Have fun!

A great page! I think the kind of layering you describe is unavoidable, it is a natural and integral part of life . And it is quite exciting as well, when you suspect that there are layers to peel off and more to be discovered; things that at the moment are hidden. The kind of layering that I find difficult to handle is when people wear deliberate masks, when they misrepresent themselves on purpose by adding artificial layers … Hmmmm, I am not sure that I’m making sense!

i need to gently remind myself of the layers of others – i sometimes forget that maybe the harsh layer i am seeing is just a cover for the softer bits inside
lovely reminiscences here

I like the idea of layers. It reminds me of the falling leaves this time of year. As the leaves fall, more layers are stripped away, clearing, leaving space for something new, something vulnerable, something hidden and wonderful.

I so want to go to Journalfest and meet you. Maybe next year?

Very well said. I couldn’t agree with you more about layers!
