Yes, the patina of sadness is present.
But, let's think of it like creme brulee.
There's a restaurant in Brussels, near the old canal, called La Villette. Small place, not conducive for loud Americans. I can't remember what they had, except for the creme brulee, because it was made from Chimay beer. And, yes, it was good.
Good creme brulee should have a surface that shouldn't be too hard to crack. My patina, my surface, is really nothing.
That creamy, rich filling below--ah, that is where the fun is.
