It’s been a chaotic week, still is. Take a deep breath. Exhale.

Sometimes, only poets have the words. Here are some nice ones from Rumi:

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 we love be what we do.
 There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.

Happy Friday.
