Whole March 21, 2012

There aren’t too many things around that are whole, you know. You look hard at most anything, and it’s probably beat up somewhere or other. Beat up, or dinged up, or missing a piece, or tattooed…

When you find something that’s whole, you do what you can to keep it that way.

And when you find something that isn’t, then maybe it’s not a bad idea to try to make it whole again. Maybe.

    Thanks for this profound thought, too. What I love about this title is that such wisdom seems completely suited to an adolescent within the context of this powerful story.

    What is clear straight away is that this post is whole and entire. Wowie! Not missing a piece, or tattooed… Great.
