i embark on another adventure

"Today, like every other day, we may wake up
empty or frightened.
Don't
open the door to the study and begin reading.
Take down a musical
instrument.
Let the beauty we love be what we do.
There are hundreds of
ways to kneel and kiss the ground. "

Jalal ad-Din Rumi13th Century Persian Poet



tomorrow mary and i embark on another adventure
to the west coast. i'm looking forward to traveling again.
we will visit Seattle, Portland, Crater Lake, Redwoods
and San Francisco!! yes it involves a road trip :)

The ending of that, "There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground" is one of my favorite Rumi lines (or pair of lines--not sure how it looks in the original), and it goes surprisingly well with the photo and text beneath it--driving down the highway on a cross country excursion count as one of those "hundreds of ways?" I would think so....
