What an interesting metaphor, Donna!

Yes.

Indeed, profound.

I was reading the title again and it reminds me of something my father said when he began carving wooden figures. When asked how he managed such a beautiful chickadee on his first attempt, he said "I just cut away everything that didn't look like a chickadee". I thought that was profound. I learned later that he borrowed it, but it is still profound and your title Pieces Life Takes Out of You... maybe they are the pieces that "look" less and less like the real "us"? Do you understand what I mean? Maybe these are the pieces that encumber us... maybe when life is finally finished with us we are finally revealed. I don't know... it just got me thinking....
