if: layer

Strata I (2011)
One by one the days slip by, building upon the strata of our lives.  One layer after another, we create our history with every breath and each passing moment.  Upheaval brings unconformity and introduces change; the familiar landscape tilts, cracks, shatters at the stress.  The sedimentary processes of our solitude, the explosive eruption of our emotions: all of these things shape who we are and who we are yet to become.  Like the ancient builders constructed the tels, the new atop the remains of the old, we recreate ourselves.  From the earth we came, and to the earth we shall return, our lives just another layer in the story of creation.
