THE CRACKS THAT LET THE LIGHT IN…

8 Mar

“Ring the bells that still can ring,
Forget your perfect offering,
There is a crack in everything,                                                                        That’s how the light gets in”
(Leonard Cohen from “Anthem” on the album/CD “The Future“)

These words have been a source of inspiration and challenge to me for some years and of late I have come to realise that while they initially inspired me about cracks in our society and church institutions, they have come to have even more profound meaning in relation to my own cracks and what they teach me about myself and my life, especially in the context of my Bi Polar disorder.

WATCH THIS SPACE…MORE TO COME…

And the name of my blog butteryyam.wordpress.com                                                                           is inspired by another poet, (Marge Piercy?), in the poem “The woman in the ordinary”. Will add text of this later.

Love and Peace XO
