Back With My Eastern Bard : Jalāl ad-Dīn Mohammad Balkhī 

It’s wonderful to hear his name spoken properly.

I’ve been RUMI – nating.


My traveler’s notebook is filling up quickly. One of the inserts is called Collections. This is where I “collect” stuff that means a lot to me.

I’ve written an almanac for next year and the pagan calendar too. The next collection is poetry.

What about these words from a Persian who is said to have lived 800 years ago?

Ignore those that make you fearful and sad,

That degrade you back towards disease and death

How very apt.

I might send this quote to Bojo, our demented leader !
