We Are All Broken

I recently saw an article about Kintsugi. In Japan when pottery breaks they repair the item with gold rather than making it look like new or replacing it. The new item looks more beautiful than before and the history is honored rather than forgotten. I love this concept. It has definitely sparked interest.

After reading that article I came across the quote, “We are all broken, that’s how the light gets in.” by Ernest Hemingway. After that, I knew it needed to be a journal page. I love how she turned out.

We feel broken sometimes.
