Your Defects
 

An empty mirror and your worst destructive habits,

when they are held up to each other,

that's when the real making begins.

That's what art and crafting are.

 

A tailor needs a torn garment to practice his expertise.

The trunks of trees must be cut and cut again

so they can be used for fine carpentry.

 

Your doctor must have a broken leg to doctor.

Your defects are the ways that glory gets manifested.
