Peeling Back in Time
submitted by Jen Atkins who wrote this about it:
I've always liked looking at graffiti and wondering how many layers of paint have been applied over the years. I managed to find a few spots under a bridge on the college campus where I could actually see the paint peeling, revealing the history of colors of paint applied to the concrete. It makes me think of how we may look at our own history as individuals, looking back and seeing how much we have changed over the years. It seems that we all have so many layers- some we don't like that we've covered up with something new and some that were reluctantly applied, but ended up being amazing improvements.
