As we wear.

Life shapes us–there’s no revelation in that. But our default mode is to look critically at that shape, tallying up our mistakes, misdirections, regrets, weaknesses. But can you not see how the passing of time has sculpted us? Can you not see how that sculpting has revealed us to ourselves, and can we not, by shifting our perspective, by embracing a 360-degree view, see ourselves as we are? 

We are meant to be seen in situ, because our environment has carved us into something strong–a fierce, immovable force that now stands elegantly against the wind.
