Experiencing Interruptions?

Kintsugi: (金継ぎ)

Kintsugi (金継ぎ) "Repair with gold":

Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with powdered gold, welding the fragments together
The practice comes from the idea that from the imperfection and from a wound can be born an even greater form of aesthetic and interior perfection.

Kintsugi is the story of two souls trying to put the pieces of their relationship back together during a hot summer night.
