A friend of mine once named his band, Zu Zu's Petals, but for me the memory of Zu Zu's Petals comes from my all-time favorite movie, It's a Wonderful Life.
Zu Zu's petals played such an important role in that movie, because Zu Zu asked Daddy (George, played by Jimmy Stewart) to "fix" her broken flower. After pretending to affix the fallen petals to the flower, and after depositing the fallen petals into his pocked, George handed the broken flower back to her. Zu Zu didn't notice that the petals were missing and was just as happy with her flower, thinking Daddy had fixed it, as she was when she first got it.
To me that flower represented George's broken life, or at least his perception of his broken life.
Like the flower, our lives are fragile and when they break, we often try to fix them, tucking remnants that have fallen away deep inside the recesses of our minds. Sometimes the broken pieces represent something important to us. We hold onto them, because we realize that those who love us, love us just the way we are, broken or not.
