Beauty in the Broken Places

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

The broken parts have the deepest beauty.
A road is just a road until you stop and see a turtle hiding.
The crack in perfection is where new life takes root.
Magic is in how you look at things.

  3. Of course YOU see beuatiful tings in cracks in the road! It’s ’cause you’re always looking for the faeries down there where the rest of us just walk on by. Love this. Cheers, Cackie

  5. So amazing what grows in the cracks along the street and sidewalk. Almost like you can’t stop life no matter now hard we try. I’m never looked at a pot hole like this before it’s very lovely and detailed. Have a super day!
