Wall With A Past

I love a good wall. The best ones, like the most interesting people, have acquired more character as they have aged. There is a sense of mystery with hints of past lives and past goings-on in the marks on this wall; colors added, things removed, textures acquired in the process. It is like  a map that I don't know how to follow. Someone could cut out a section of the wall, write a pompous artist statement and hang it in a gallery. But no---part of the experience is the surprise of coming across such a wall as this.
