To be profoundly broken is to be connected innately to the nerve center of life. It is to fly against the backdrop of a piercingly blue sky and come crashing down as naturally as the rain. The challenge before living creatures, from the dainty forest shrew to the much more complex and more emotionally brittle human, is accept this. Yet to truly emerge from our shell, to interact and see this world for all that it is, we need to do more. We need to love all the little broken daring pieces as much as we love the totality of the world.
