Perfection, if it COULD be achieved, might not be such a blessing. Take it from songwriter/poet Leonard Cohen:
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
And then when you’ve got a minute or ten, and are up for some profound emotion, try this one:
“Every heart, every heart
to love will come
but like a refugee.”
There are perfect moments – listening to this was one of them. Thank you for sharing this.
Perfection, perception… we’d do well to pay attention to every moment.
Glad you could listen. I love it.
‘profound emotions’ …Cohen never lets me down in that respect. Thank you for posting this — I had not heard it before. Such simple words … and yet so poignant.
That it is — simple and poignant. And powerful —

I love Cohen… love him!
You’ve got a lot of good company, Cecilia —
Rebekah was so touched by your post, she re-blogged it and I’m so glad she did, because I got the pleasure (and the goosebumps) of enjoying it too. It’s brilliant, those words so simple yet powerful sent shivers down my spine.
I took the liberty of sharing it on Facebook, so hope you don’t mind – I think others need to see and hear those words.
Thank you so much for sharing it with us.
It’s nice to know that wonderful idea embodied so well in Leonard Cohen’s song is being shared, and traveling —
The wonders of blogging.
BTW, I’ve peeked at some of your posts and think I’m going to find them fascinating. There are really kangaroos at the bottom of your street!!!!
