Whats in the middle of the onion when you peel it? Nothing! Whats in the middle of each of us when you get deep enough? Nothing! This Nothing is the empty void we all emerge from, it is what we all go back to and it is inevitable. However we are in the time of the onion peeling so peel away.
Each layer of this delicate skin represents a question or issue we enjoy playing with, my layer was about worth and value and the measure of success.

I asked around for others to answer taking a pole of opinion, this is what I got.
