This morning I …

January 18, 2016

brokenLast week I attended the funeral of a dear friend and my husband last his job.  Both pretty horrible but I will not dwell on either; that has been done!

However, this morning while preparing for my first morning cuppa I broke the handle off my water jug. Such a shame, but not a disaster I have plenty of jugs to use, none of which match and not perhaps so aesthetically pleasing; none would detract from the taste or effect. Yet,I feel the need to repair the little gem and extend its life a bit longer. I don’t want to chuck it in the bin. So with a blob of superglue and the right attitude it will last a bit longer.

I do understand that in Japanese culture breakages are celebrated, and repaired accordingly with gold. I believe it is called Kintsugi. 

So, while I know nothing about this procedure I would like to investigate it  further and would value thoughts and ideas.  

While a blob of glue and a twirl of gold may not bring  back my friend or conjurer up a new opportunity for my husband  … repair and adjustment can be beautiful and restorative
