Layered look

"A grownup is a child with layers on."

-- Woody Harrelson 

Self portrait 7-2-13

“... sometimes people keep parts of themselves hidden and secret,
sometimes wicked and unkind parts, but often brave or wild or colorful parts,
cunning or powerful or even marvelous, beautiful parts,
just locked up away at the bottom of their hearts.
They do this because they are afraid of the world and of being stared at,
or relied upon to do feats of bravery or boldness.” 

-- Catherynne M. Valente,
The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There

“Everyone was made up of infinitely layered petals. 
And everyone had something indescribably precious at the heart of their being.
No one was shallow. 
Not really.” 

-- Mary Balogh, A Secret Affair
