lyrics

Kintsukuroi or Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer mixed with gold. The richness of this as an analogy for so many areas of our lives is hopefully fairly apparent. Pondering how we take things that are broken in our lives and, instead of trying to hide them or pretend the breaks aren’t there, look at ways to move forward acknowledging the breaks, and making something new and beautiful out of where you are is a tough gig, but a vital one for our mental wellbeing. I like the idea of humans being broken pots heading for beautiful repairs... I like the idea of me being that. I have a pretty advanced capacity for making really stupid decisions. And I want both the strength to acknowledge the consequences of those, and a path to reconstruction for the people and relationships affected.
