Description

In which Carla tells two stories that explain finding cupcakes in dark places: one is her story, one is Leonard Cohen's.

Referenced reading: The Flame, by Leonard Cohen: his full acceptance speech for the Prince of Asturias Award, on October 21, 2011, from which I quoted in this episode, begins on page 267. https://bookshop.org/a/6560/9781250234797
