Happy 83rd Birthday Leonard Cohen

Waldina

Today is the 83rd birthday of the singer, songwriter, poet, truth teller, and genius who is quoted as saying “Everything has a crack in it, that’s how the light gets in.” Leonard Cohen. His music and thoughtfully chosen lyrics resonate through generations around the globe. I find myself still, listening, every time I unexpectedly encounter one of his songs. I have stared blankly at the bakery display in a Starbucks, my mind wrapped around his words, sliding between them, memorizing their placement. The world is a better place because he was in it and still feels the loss that he has left.
