 The birds they sang 
At the break of day 
Start again I heard them say 
Don't dwell on what has passed away 
Or what is yet to be 
Ah, the wars they will be fought again 
The holy dove, she will be caught again 
Bought and sold, and bought again 
The dove is never free 
Ring the bells that still can ring 
Forget your perfect offering 
There is a crack, a crack in everything 
That's how the light gets in.
Leonard Cohan

In fact I had also thought about using the last two Cohen lines for this theme - thanks for your thoughtful card!

Oh, this is just stunning, Deann. It's such a glorious depiction of light and dark that it just takes my breath away. When coupled with Cohen's stunning verse t moves into the realm of perfect mastery. Beautiful.
