Exteriors win awards; interiors win hearts. 

The theft of depth leaves us bereft. 

A patriarchal covering — smothering. 

Coatings get chipped; canopies get ripped; pretenses get stripped.

A surface is temporary; a core, it’s massively and eternally ephemeral. 

We live and die on surfaces, created by internal forces. 

Civilization is the polishing of surfaces, crafted out of wildernesses.

Control —  it’s the deft management of slippery surfaces.

A gorgeous exterior, a laborious process. 

Beauty, like painting is one of the surface arts; character, like architecture requires some seriously ugly excavations.
