Cracked



"There's a crack in everything. 
That's how the light gets in."

—Leonard Cohen

  1. I love the glass fixtures and I think Leonard Cohen is correct...There is also something to be said for being cracked but not broken...Hugs.

  2. I love that quote. I've often thought about it in reference to my Sophie's life.

  3. And have you ever heard of the custom (Japanese? maybe?) of repairing cracks in precious pottery with gold?
    Here we go: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kintsugi
    "As a philosophy it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise."
    It is called Kintsugi. It is beautiful. So are you.

  5. One of my favourite song lyrics, and one we used to quote frequently at the Zen center I attended in New York!
