Light

There is a crack, a crack in everything.

That's how the light gets in.

---Leonard Cohen

Hi Gabrielle
Thank god for cracks! Thank God the light gets in. I finally see our guiding light to lead us out of the dark tunnel Bush has us and the world in. 19 more days we can hope!

Oh how beautiful!!!

I've been needing an affirmation of being cracked today my friend ;)

Needing to give myself permission to be happy... just cos ;)...

In spite of the cracks and the disappointments and the imperfections...

To celebrate the light...

The open moment...

the possible dream...

And then I come here and read your love... and i see that all i need to do is to be a child

to close my hands in prayer
and listen
to the music...

My deep love to you dearest friend,

May wings of softness and wild grace
surround you this year
and always,

Maithri

Is that smile the crack that allows the light or the light that forces the crack?

an average patriot - 12 days and counting. I have great hopes for a changing tide.

Maithri –. yes, it's that simple. I was listening to the music and I saw the girl. then I fell through the crack. And heard the music for the first time.

the walking man - Mark, you would pose this question. If I were to go out on a limb, I would say it was the smile.

Diane - Yes !!!

Raven - May the light shine through the cracks for you. And I know you will beam it right back.
