Food for Thought
Off for the weekend. . . Here is an apt piece by Rumi:

Let us fall in love again
and scatter gold dust all over the world.
Let us become a new spring
and feel the breeze drift in the heavens’ scent.

Let us dress the earth in green,
and like the sap of a young tree
let the grace from within sustain us.

Let us carve gems out of our stony hearts and let them light our path to Love.

The glance of Love is crystal clear
and we are blessed by its light.

~ Rumi
