How memories lie to us. How time coats the ordinary with gold. How it breaks the heart to go back and attempt to re-live them. How crushed we are when we discover that the gold was merely gold-plating thinly coated over lead, chalk and peeling paint.
Henry Rollins, Black Coffee Blues

There's no gold here, but the peeling paint still unveils the 'truth' and it isn't always as 'pretty'. Nevertheless, there can be an advantage in knowing what you are really dealing with...even with a new paint job. Lorenzo Walker campus, Naples, FL
