A Crack in Everything

forget your perfect offering

there is a crack in everything

that's how the light gets in

—Leonard Cohen
A very stressful week—but the idea that stress causes cracks (and vice versa) cheers me, when I take a moment to consider this picture and the quote, because they remind me that it is just there at the point of maximum stress that light gets through, and hopeful violas, and growth into the future that might otherwise not be.

It always amazes me when I see the weeds in the garden gently, persistently, displacing the paving stones, over the months and years, and finally breaking them down.  I must remember that as a way of going forward—especially now, when I feel these immovable blocks sitting solidly in my path.
