…broken to pieces, ADAR ALFANDARI – Gold Dust
by Walter Price
No one is impervious to the trials and tribulations of life. Experiences, choices, and moments that can weigh and cause seemingly insurmountable obstacles. The sort of contemplations that can fracture your foundation. And the new single from Israeli singer-songwriter Adar Alfandari, “Gold Dust”, is a beautiful and poignant song about refurbishing one’s self by replacing negativity with beauty.
I once was broken to pieces
And then was glued with gold dust
My structure then became stronger
But the cracks filled my heart
I wanna take down this warning sign
It shuts down my adventurous side
Today I’ll try the forest road
Or at least what’s left from the crop
Maybe I’ll prefer flowers
Over mountains of bills
And with my new minded portal
I’ll make the switch in a blink
Alfandari speaks of the inspirations behind this lovely voiced new release, “The song is inspired by the art of Kintsugi- the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with gold. By embracing flaws and imperfections you can create stronger and more beautiful pieces of art, or symbolically create fuller and stronger human beings.”
And you can watch the film, feat. Kintsugi Sensei Showzi Tsukamoto and created by Nick Böse, Timm Markgraf and Klaus Motoki Tonn, now at the GTC.

With an injured vessel comes an injured mind
And that’s where I draw the line
