from Rumi (and Anna ...)

Moon burns clear all the dark night
Do that yourself,
and a spring will rise like the tide, in the dark,
with water your deepest thirst
is made for."

- Rumi

when I asked to make sure, Anna fessed that she had turned star to moon, added tide ... :-)

Robert Duncan had a lot to say about the beauty of borrowings, and transformations and the "communon of poets", so in that spirit!

"Justice is truth in action."

Crossed my path: Tag Line

Tag lines are part of the "Mundo Bene" thread in the modern world. This one crossed my desk today.

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense."-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Your old nonsense :-)

This from the new worst people in the world ...

First, I think that Bush, Inc is right - Iran should not have nuclear weapons - that is a horrible idea! No nation should. Not Iran, not Pakistan, not India, not Russia, not the USA.

Maybe we should take the lead in this

These images, one guy taking pics with his cell phone in Tehran, are illuminating

Life goes on in Tehran

Check out the 10th pic in September ... (September 2007 that is!)

Crossed my path: from the Quaker Peace Testimony

“Our truth is an ancient one; that love endures and overcomes; that hatred destroys; that what is obtained by love is retained, but what is obtained by hatred proves a burden.” -- Quaker Peace Testimony
