Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

Weekly photo challenge -layers


When I saw the weekly photo challenge was ‘layers’ I immediately thought of a watercolor piece of art and how the layers of paint create the image.  But I don’t have a water color available right now to show you.

Then I thought of  the layers of clothing that runners wear now as the weather gets colder.  But I couldn’t think of a creative way to show you that.

I even thought about the bark on some trees I saw in California last week, the colors there were layered and the bark was peeling off.  Interesting and pretty but not exactly what I wanted.

Then I thought about the saying we use when we’re trying to get to the truth – to peel away the layers like an onion – and I knew what I wanted to do.

Off to the grocery store I went to collect some onions, many sizes and colors, layering in the texture and interest…with one large red onion cut to more explicitly express layering.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASo there you  have it.  My interpretation of layers.

Time to make some soup now.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.
