“So the great affair is over but whoever would have guessed
it would leave us all so vacant and so deeply unimpressed
It’s like our visit to the moon or to that other star
I guess you go for nothing if you really want to go that far.
It’s like our visit to the moon or to that other star
I guess you go for nothing if you really want to go that far.”

Death of a Ladies Man by Leonard Cohen
September 21, 1934- November 10, 2016

“Ring the bells that still can ring. Forget your perfect offering. There’s a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.”
Anthem by Leonard Cohen
