I hope you guys are all enjoying a wonderful holiday season! Over at the Creative Carte Blanche blog, the theme of our December Adventure, courtesy of the dazzling Cheryl Grigsby, is “Song Lyrics.” That’s the only criteria, so you’re welcome and encouraged to get as creative as you dare!
Seems like a lot of us have had a singularly difficult year. Personally, I’m still reeling from the loss of my beloved Mom, who passed away in August, and my dear feline companion, Bowie, who left us two months later. I’m far from alone in all this, though. Seems nearly everyone I know has experienced some kind of hardship or heartbreak this year. So, I wanted my piece for this final challenge of 2016 to honor that, and also hopefully offer some ray of encouragement. To that end, there could be no lyrics more fitting than the beautiful words of the late, brilliant Leonard Cohen, from his song “Anthem.”
“There is a crack in everything; that’s how the light gets in.”
I wish you a truly happy, peaceful, prosperous, hopeful, joyful 2017, and thank you so much for visiting! The Creative Carte Blanche Song Lyrics Adventure is open through the end of December, and we’d love to see your creative take on this theme.
Happy New Year!
