I have to tell the truth. I am in love…

I am in love with Kintsukuroi. It means “To repair with gold”. It´s the Japanese art of repairing pottery with gold or silver lacquer and understanding that the piece is more beautiful for having been broken.

I love the symbolism of this form of art. It symbolize love at the same time as you get able to think how you are. How is life? You´re interesting if you are damaged, more beautiful if you accept and perform your weakness and let it heal, in this time with gold. It complete you. From where do you get that love that heals you with gold and silver? That love that´s make you beautiful. A broken life is worth repairing. A broken ceramic bowl too. Being you is what makes you beautiful.

    Beautiful art, beautiful philosophy. It reminds me of a Hemingway quote: “The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places.” (Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms, 1929)
    A friend used the quote to title his book [Strong at the Broken Places] about creating inclusive communities where the disabled (including himself) are significant contributors and lend their strength.
