Kintsukoroi**.
The word meant “to mend with gold”, and it was a technique developed by the Japanese to fix broken lacquer-ware. But the word meant more than the technique itself. It also held a deep, but simple, philosophy: a piece of pottery once broken can be made more beautiful by the shards it once was. The breaks were highlighted and praised, instead of being covered up.

This is such a profound thought. Our imperfections can, indeed, make us all the more beautiful. I very much like the idea of outlining in gold the ways we have been broken and put back together.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
