musciansWe talk about time as it’s a linear progression but in many ways, it is a continuum. Like the layers of a cake, or the striations of an ancient capital like Rome, each epoch build one upon the other. Whether by visiting these past “layers in time”, we come away enlightening is how honest we are with the results of those decisions we have made as a society

A boy who hears a lesson in history ended by the beauty of peace, and how Napoleon brought ruin upon the world and that he should be forever cursed, will not long have much confidence in his teacher. He wants to hear more about the fighting and less about the peace negotiations. ~William Lee Howard, Peace, Dolls and Pugnacity
