Oana Cajal, whose evocative Leonard Cohen-inspired videos long graced Cohencentric, writes

We present our newest visual invocation of Cohenesque mysterious longing.
Isolation has brought us even closer to him.
We feel that “The Goal” is the kindest of all premonitory messages he could have left us.

A key poem fit to open the inner peace secret chamber, shelter from our tragic
Dark Present Days.
We are listening to ”The Goal”, we are listening to the immeasurable deep voice,
the beloved voice of our Great Professor and we are suddenly reassured that the meaning
of “There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in” will never die
even when we fail the Gods by simply being mortals.
