708Heather (H-Bomb), a songwriter and co-owner of the Wondering Goat Coffee Company in Eugene, Oregon US, heard this from the legendary singer-songwriter himself, Leonard Cohen, at a recent poetry reading.
"I caught up with her baking morning pastries when she scribed this on the SOTM pad. 'There is a crack in everything, that's how the light get in', explains Heather, 'is his way of saying that in the end, it's our human imperfections that will bring us clarity, light and whatever enlightenment we can hope to attain.
"It was so powerful to hear him read these words. The truth of light will always transform. It really stuck with me'." Taken by Garth McKay in Eugene, OR, USA.
