Ring The Bells

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

-- refrain from "Anthem". Leonard Cohen

I work for a "faith-based" health care provider (read: Catholic .. *spit*) and they send us smarmy inspirations on a regular basis. Most of them I delete without reading, some of them I read, gag, and then delete. But this was the one for this week and it resonated with me.

And Leonard Cohen is one of the most cracked of them all. There's a lot of light coming in from that dude :-)

I think I'll go listen to "Suzanne"...I love that song.
Exactly !

Bird on a Wire always does it for me !
I swapped a book of Leonard Cohen for some Rowanspun Aran a couple of years ago. . .
Clearly there's a subversive in the inspiration generators. Woohoo.
Good old faith-based hospital that GIVES ME MY FREE PSYCHIATRY.

*evil laugh*

Still working on getting that night offa work. *crosses fingers* I'll still show up for a little bit though, Knitta willing.
It doesnt surprise me one bit that Leonard Cohen lyrics would ring true for you. You should hear the rest of his stuff. I'm the only one in my immediate circle that likes him.
check it out.
I love those lyrics. They are a memory of a special time for me and it was nice to stumble upon them here.
That's because it's Leonard Cohen. Who do have a way with the words.
