Every morning, we’ve been reading a page from Yoko Ono’s tiny book of instructions, Acorn. We have been moved by many of the “instructions” we’ve come across. We find this one, which advices a practice of mending, both physical and emotional, especially compelling.
We were reminded how the process of mending a broken thing can often be like a meditation as step-by-step you bring it back to usefulness of beauty, healing it as it were. It is in itself an act of love.
Why not take the metaphor a step further, and work to mend an inner rift or tear or wound as you mend something dear?
