None of us are perfect, but neither are we broken. Our chronic illness does not speak of who we are or how we got here. Every line and wrinkle has a story, each was earned and had a purpose. The grey of my hair glows as if it were a trophy. Following a Japanized tradition, I fill the broken cracks with gold. It lends beauty to what was broken and honors my attempt at mending it.
