An Old Favourite

20160707_101422

Today, like every other day,

we wake up empty and frightened.

Don’t open the door to the study and begin

reading.

Take down a musical instrument.

Let the beauty of what we love be what we do.

There are a thousand ways to kneel

and kiss the ground.

 

Rumi

 

It’s good sometimes to leave the have to’s and shoulds behind, to immerse ourselves in the goodness of those things we love to do.
