That's how the light gets in."

    1. Thanks Martha. I was listening to CBC radio on Sunday afternoon and they had a retrospective/documentary about Leonard Cohen. I have followed his career since the 70's and have admired his work. This quote stood out for me.

    1. This wall Nancy is very old and is in a park in Halifax. We've walked past it so many times that I decided the other day to stop and 'capture' it. Thanks.

  7. You must be all cracked up then. Because there's so much light in you it shines out the other side.

    1. I just heard this morning that he is coming to Halifax in April on his Canadian tour!! Last time I saw him here was in 1969! I think we have both changed since then....a bit!

  9. Hey Jim!
    I'm too tired to see straight, so that's why I had to do my comment over.
    You could have used this quotation for one of your Contemplative Mondays posts.
    You have to be cracked open and let the light in a few times before you gain any wisdom!
    I hope you had a good day.
