Wheat field with old tree is beauty and imperfection

“If you look closely at a tree you’ll notice it’s knots and dead branches, just like our bodies. What we learn is that beauty and imperfection go together wonderfully.” ~ Matthew Fox

It is funny how we can see that in a tree or even a building but when it comes to our skin we struggle with this. The result; a society hugely divided by how we look rather than who we are. It is not a thing that is serving us well. It creates stigma, segregation, fear and hatred and everywhere I look it appears to be on the rise.
