Well, just to prove that 2016 will go down in history as a year in which we lost too many icons, Leonard Cohen has passed away at age 82. He was a true visionary as well as a songwriter and poet, and the world will not be a better place without him. I picked this quote because with everything that’s going on…well…it just seems fitting somehow.

There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.
