of cracks and light and missed souls

Yesterday I found out that Leonard Cohen died, and it just made 2016 suck that much more. I saw him in concert twice — and each time, I was in awe of how he just spoke poetry.

My favourite song of his is Anthem, mainly because it fits me (and it’s definitely on my life soundtrack):

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.

It reminds me of this sculpture, and the story behind it.

It’s me. I’m glad that cracks can be light and beautiful, because I’ve got my own share of ’em.
