"Writing is a way of talking without being interrupted."

The Whole is Greater than the Sum of its Parts

2020 is only 40 days old and here I am again recollecting all the new year spirit that had crushed to pieces in order to make life on course again. Not easy, I must say, especially when Copenhagen’s wind blowing in its full speed this week. I might have lost some pieces in the famous Copenhagen’s Four Lakes on my way biking home.

Then, they said that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Dang! Does this mean that I would never be a whole again even when I found all the pieces on the floor of those lakes? Whoever wrote that line has never known the art of Kintsugi. Though, I do agree in most two cents on that article, I believe that people should stop being smart asses when it comes to brokeness.

Let broken people be broken. Shut up and give ’em hugs. Because maybe this time… the brokeness will last forever and the person needs to live with it, preferably without your wise mouthing around.
