Heidi posted this quote in the comment section the other day. It sounded familiar and I liked it very much...so I googled it. :op
It is from a song called Anthem.
Now I wanted so much to listen to the song and love it but Leonard Cohen (RIP 2016)
had a very dark, deep, unusual style.
He was a poet first of all.
If you know country music you may recognize Bird on a Wire which has been recorded by everyone.
If you know popular culture, you know Hallelujah. (Also recorded by everyone)
This is, of course, the one I love.
I'm pretty sure I posted this on my blog when I first heard this rendition last June...and learned about Choir, Choir, Choir.
I've liked Rufus Wainwright since Emma shared his music with me in high school.
So here is Rufus singing Hallelujah....
Meet our Rufus.
Janice is giving Rufus a proper hug.
"Ring the bells that still can ring, forget your perfect offering, there is a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in."
Back to this quote.
Encouragement for the imperfect among us,
p.s. I have just learned that learned is not good English.
It keeps showing up in my writing as a misspelled word.
What the heck.
Me. Being Imperfect.
