What if, instead of fighting against our imperfections, we use them, as gold, to show us the imperfections of others, and thus arrive at understanding and empathy. ~Author Unknown

I couldn’t find the author of this exact quote, but according to my handwritten notes, it refers to Kintsukuroi, the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold. The results are often more spectacular that the original pottery piece.

I took this photo at our local Whole Foods, even though I couldn’t get the shot without a label showing in the background. And the faint presence of a spider web at the top? I think that only adds to the beauty.
