That Which Is Broken

This afternoon my 17 year old son dislocated a finger while playing basketball at school. I met his school counselor at the hospital E.R., and waited while they got the finger back in position, and took some x-rays. Turns out he had a chip fracture.

On the drive taking him back to his group home he turns to me and asks,

"Dad, have you ever had something broken in your body?"



  1. broken? More like being put through a mincing machine, amputated, smashed into smithereens.

    But it's interesting that we immediately associate the word "broken" with heart these days ... I'm sure I associated it with bones and china "before".

    Love that photo Dan, and I love you x
