Oh, the learning that went into THESE layers!

I have a theory that learning, and life, is in the layers. But that, of course, raises the question, layers of what? I have my own opinions on that, but I'll be interested to hear yours.

What follows is a little experiment with layers. It will quickly become clear that I desperately needed a metronome, among other things, and that I still have a lot to learn about Audacity, but it was fun to do nonetheless. How many layers can YOU identify?! ;-) (Note: If you click the play button and nothing happens, try clicking on the volume control on the right-hand end of the bar.)

- An earlier attempt--more successful in some ways, less so in others

P.S. Well, I obviously haven't yet learned ENOUGH because some friends and family just tried to listen and are telling me that the files I've included here aren't working. So, try THIS link instead.

I'm not sure, maybe 3 or 4?? It sure was pretty though.

I've thought a lot about layers. Maybe you've heard people use the onion to describe the layers of life. Sometimes I feel a strong deja vu as I deal with a certain trial, thinking, surely I learned that lesson already. Then something tells me that it's just a little deeper or different. When this life is over and I can stand back unbiased from my life, it will be so interesting to see what God saw.

Thanks, Cindi! I think there were actually 5 different "loops" and some of the loops had the text from more than one scripture or song woven into them.

Yes, I've heard the onion metaphor. It will be interesting to see what God saw. For now, I figure that the fact that I can look back at a few of my recent trials and be grateful for them is progress, b/c I certainly wasn't feeling grateful when I was in the middle of them!
