There’s a Crack In Everything: That’s How The Light Gets In

Leonard Cohen passed away recently. Ordinarily I’d do an homage to his music and poetry, but there’s not much to say that already hasn’t been well said. Those that liked him really liked him, and those that didn’t don’t care. For those who are interested, here’s a really good article about him while he was alive from The New Yorker.

“I Lost My Way”
I lost my way, I forgot to call on your name.
The raw heart beat against the world,
and the tears were for my lost victory.
But you are here.
You have always been here.
The world is all forgetting,
and the heart is a rage of directions,
but your name unifies the heart,
and the world is lifted into its place.
Blessed is the one who waits
in the traveller’s heart for his turning.

From “Book Of Mercy”
by Leonard Cohen

I’ll miss you Leonard.

    me too. I had to grow up to him, to understand, to get what he was saying. Some performers, some people, are like that.
