There is no map for this territory, excepting an occasional found one for temporary use that might have just the right shade of green, or movement of contour lines. And besides it’s not really territory anyway so isn't accessible to flatland maps. Then there’s the time aspect too, but it’s not chrono or logical.

She had been on those big fat archeological digs excavating the past, but it was like trying to remove acrylic paint and images and it wasn't happening.

She preferred the move-forward-and-keep-adding-methodology. So as she laminated the paste, poetry, ink, scratches, paint, imprints, stencils, pencils, and texture, she noticed that  it really did have depth, in a building up sort of way rather than a tearing down and uncovering way. She was fine with that.
