“Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything.

“There’s a blaze of light in every word;

with nothing on my lips but Hallelujah!”
– Lines taken from the legendary song “Hallelujah” by the legendary Canadian poet and songwriter Leonard Cohen (1934-November 7, 2016)
