"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." These words by Leonard Cohen in "Anthem" helped me rediscover hope after the loss of our youngest daughter, Sarah. The pattern of life is broken just like this stone. Yet that same brokenness provides an opening for light and new beginnings. The gold represents light filling in the brokenness and radiating outward. Currently in exhibition at The Hive Gallery, Bee Cave Art Foundation, Bee Cave, Texas.
