The Power of Scars

"Scars have the strange power to remind us that our past is real.” 
~~Cormac McCarthy (All The Pretty Horses)

Thanks - I've always found the imagery of scars very powerful...

Another of my favorites:
When I stand before thee at the days end, thou shalt see my scars and know that I had my wounds and also my healing. – Rabindranath Tagore, 1861-1941, Nobel Prize Laureate (1913, Literature).
