Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.”

  1. Like the Japanese idea of the cracked bowl is a thing of beauty. Where you there at Maggie’s when were discussion perfection and imperfection? I like the photo, is it Centre for Life Sciences?

    1. Pleased you liked the image Steve. It’s amazing how rain and light can transform an ordinary object. I first discovered Leonard Cohen as a teenager and since then there are times when I can’t relate to his songs anymore. But then I’ll suddenly find I’m playing his albums and it’s like falling in love for the first time. It’s not music to slash your wrists to exactly but I think you need to be in an introspective phase.
