Time leaves evidence in layers. Sometimes the layers reveal themselves so we can see traces of the years out of sequence. The past and the present interact in ways that were never intended. People, decades apart, impose their actions on the built environment, never realizing that the actions that other people took years before would someday mingle with their own efforts, creating effects none of them could ever imagine. And now, when we see those layers exposed, we create a new meaning.

What about the natural world? A flower is beautiful to us, and to other creatures as well. Even insects are attracted to the blossom. But the meaning we give to the bloom is a human thing.
