Perfect Imperfection

In Bangkok taxis, even cracks in windshields can receive decorative treatments. The driver of this cab could have used utilitarian tape or clear glue to patch the fissure, but instead highlighted the crack by sticking suction cups in alternating colors over it. Perhaps this remedy could be viewed metaphorically as a lesson on how to deal with quandaries in life. Rather than hiding issues or throwing out problems altogether, we should learn to celebrate imperfections and turn flaws into something wonderful.
