There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in, ”sings Leonard Cohen in ‘Anthem ‘.
Last weekend, week 45, My wife and joined a retreat, where we all be quiet for 3 days. We also got to paint and draw on the theme of the retreat in ‘Ryggåsstugan’ (‘Back Ridge Cottage’, belonging to Luleå Diocesan in Skellefteå in northern Sweden.
That’s How The Light Gets In
Over the weekend I had to break the silence, because had to work outdoors for a few hours each weekend day.
That’s when I took the photo below at dawn, and I’m using it as a commentary on Cohen’s fine text.
At every morning one of those responsible for the retreat had a meditation on an image that he had created around the retreatens theme.
It was very nice, artistic meditations on images and light.
I felt very happy afterwards, and go on more retreats. Make it you with.
