Kintsugi

Thanks to google, I learnt about Kintsugi….I’d read about it in this blog post.

So Kintsugi is a Japanese form of vessel repair. Fixing / joining broken pieces of a vessel with gold or silver; to put the vessel back together. Sometimes, giving it a more beautiful look even.

This post is about life….and how it unfolds. It’s also, about hope.

…there is a crack in everything that you can put together: Physical objects, mental objects, constructions of any kind. But that’s where the light gets in, and that’s where the resurrection is and that’s where the return, that’s where the repentance is. It is with the confrontation, with the brokenness of things. – Leonard Cohen

 

Over time, the cracks will fill in with gold and silver and the vessel that remains will be stronger, wiser, and more beautiful than ever. We are all Kintsugi. – Kathy Escobar

The next time you feel broken…remember, we all can be Kintsugi-d.

Happy new month! May this May, and the rest of the year be aMAYzing! 🙂
