Find the Real World ~ Rumi

Find the real world, give it endlessly away
Grow rich, fling gold to all who ask
Live at the empty heart of Paradox
I’ll dance there with you, cheek to cheek
Your Dawn in me I’m drunk, stammering
A thousand thousand words go dark
Lightnings are dark to us to this:
Identity’s boundless worlds-wide blaze.

– Jalal-ud-Din Rumi
(Translated by Andrew Harvey from
A Year of Rumi)

The pic is a photograph of a sculpture by Bexar Oliver made out of recycled electronic parts.  My husband and I have commissioned Bexar to do a small sculpture for us — we choose what old electronics to give him and he creates an integrated piece  – cool!

Why Rumi?

    Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon every day.
    It’s always helpful to read content from other writers and use
    a little something from their web sites.
