    Recently, a dear friend posted this picture and text on Facebook.

    The quote from Barbara Bloom beneath the image reads:

    “When the Japanese mend broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe that when something’s suffered damage and has a history it becomes more beautiful.”
