layers

below is part of a note i just received from an old friend of mine...
it is as beautiful a sentiment as it is true...
 

"Why is it the people who knew us before we knew ourselves seem like the people who know us best of all?  Maybe it's all those complicated layers that life forces us to grow.  I always think of my top layer as my current self, but that's not true at all.  It's all the layers together... and it turns out the top one isn't the most important."
