That's How The Light Gets In...

"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, Anthem

There is perfection in the imperfect moments. The moments when his hair isn't quite right and she can't find the words and he steps on your feet and she snort laughs. Those perfectly delectable moments when you look around a group of friends and see nothing but beauty in every crazy bit of them. And you pause, and you breathe it all in, because you know that here, in the light and the laughter, is God. The only God worth knowing. And you send up a prayer to all that is to say YES. and OH MY. and THANK YOU. and AMEN. And you put your head on the pillow and, with a smile on your face and in your heart, you drift off into the still quiet, where the dream meets the dream.

Thanks Eric. Loved the song. I obviously need to explore more Sigur Ros.

I had a feeling you'd like them.

Check out the documentary called Heima if you can find it. It's a great introduction to their music.

A bit of warning though: it'll give you the worst Iceland-related travel bug you can imagine.
