The miniature, location and message.





This stone is for the message of Xander W.:

“There is a Crack in everything, that’s where the light gets in.

This sentence might mostly be known from the song “The Anthem” from Leonard Cohen.

It also originates from an old story about a man who lost his leg. He retreated himself in a monastery where he made many drawings. His anger about losing his leg was shown in his drawings, which all depicted cracked vases and other damaged items. They resembled his own brokenness. During the course of time he found inner rest and he changed to a more positive view on life. At the same time he kept making drawings of cracked vases. This intrigued his teacher who asked him why he keeps on drawing cracked vases, didn’t he feel healed then? The man answered that he certainly feels healed as do the cracked vases. The cracks let the light get in.

Nobody is perfect and everybody has some sort of cracks. These cracks make you unique and who you are. By embracing these cracks or imperfections, you not only allow the light to get in but you also open up to others. In fact one could say, it will show the beauty of imperfection.

I know the songs of Leonard Cohen through my father, as he was a fan of his music. I heard the songs but never paid too much attention to the lyrics. When my mother passed away some years ago “The Anthem” played an important role in the mourning process of my father and I started to discover the lyrics of this song. When my father passed away 3 years later, this song played, of course, an even bigger role in our mourning process and from now on has a special place in my heart.”

This stone started travelling on 2019-04-11.
