Layers

If you ever get close to a human
And human behaviour
Be ready, be ready to get confused

And there’s no map
and a compass
wouldn’t help at all

– Bjork – “Human Behavior”

I have found with human interaction, as in nature, the rawness of life can be difficult to engage with a straight face. I feel like we wear different filters, or layers, to protect ourselves from the inputs or our interpretation of them. For those that feel deeply, what they take in can almost be overwhelming. We are labeled as too sensitive, but I’d like to call it over-connected, really, and I wouldn’t change it for the world.
