"Anthem" by Leonard Cohen

"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 has yet to be...

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in"

Watching Over Ancient Graves

(taken by Beth Kotkin, 8/2004)

When we visited Melrose Abbey, we were allowed to climb to the roof up a very narrow and small ancient staircase that the monks had once used. It was so small that we had to go one at a time, and crouch down so as not to hit our heads. This a view from the stairs to the graves outside.
