“We are all wonderful, beautiful wrecks. That’s what connects us–that we’re all broken, all beautifully imperfect.” ~Emilio Estevez Dear Universe, When I was a kid it would seem like the end of the world when I would break a toy.  Even with glue or tape, it made me sad to see that no matter how hard I tried, the toy …
