Evolution of Taste

We are always shedding

shedding

shedding

The layers we outgrow pile up on the floor like skin

But maybe we need to respect that former shell

Not look at it with such disdain,

because pretty soon our current cells will be in the same pile..

 

Thoughts on a gray day:

“..Buildings from the recent past are highly vulnerable to aesthetic ridicule. Not old enough to be regarded as venerable or even quaint, such buildings are frequently regarded as awkward and obsolete: as examples of the funny bad taste that prevailed the day before yesterday. Try to save almost any…building from the past few decades and…you will hear derisive objections that the building in question is ‘ugly’ or is simply ‘junk.'”
