The Inktober prompt was precious. It is through our cracks & cuts that our light shines through. My csection scar is depicted here. This quote from Star Trek kept coming to mind: Kirk - "Damn it, Bones, you're a doctor. You know that pain and guilt can't be taken away with a wave of a magic wand. They're the things we carry with us, the things that make us who we are. If we lose them, we lose ourselves. I don't want my pain taken away! I need my pain!".
To be clear. I may be quoting Kirk but... it's Picard, Janeway, then Kirk for me. Remember that episode where Janeway and crew faced the manifestation of fear? 

This peice is about wearing your scars but remembering to get back up and boldly go on to new fronteers. #lessonsfromstartrek
