    RUMI THURSDAY
    THROUGH LOVE all that is bitter will sweet
    Through Love all that is copper will be gold.
    Through Love all dregs will turn to purest wine
    Through Love all pain will turn to medicine.
    Through Love the dead will all become alive.
    Through Love the king will turn into a slave!



    rocking and rolling
    what have you been drinking
    please let me know

    you must be drunk
    going house to house
    wandering from street to street

    who have you been with
    who have you kissed
    who's face have you been fondling

    you are my soul
    you are my life
    i swear my life and love is yours

    so tell me the truth
    where is that fountainhead
    the one you've been drinking from

    don't hide this secret
    lead me to the source
    fill my jug over and over again

    last night i finally caught
    your attention in the crowd
    it was your image filling my dream

    telling me to stop this wandering
    stop this search for
    good and evil

    i said my dear prophet
    give me some of
    that you've drunk for ecstasy of life

    if i let you drink you said
    any of this burning flame
    it will scorch your mouth and throat

    your portion has been
    given already by heaven
    ask for more at your peril

    i lamented and begged
    i desire much more
    please show me the source

    i have no fear
    to burn my mouth and throat
    i'm ready to drink every flame and more

    I'm sleepy...very much so. A crazy busy whirlwind of a week. Nonstop. I'm not complaining in the least. It has been beyond my wildest dreams. Even I could not have imagined the past week. The weekend itself, one I could not have created though it seems an amazing dream. A weekend at a beautiful casino, tasting wines and eating wonderful gourmet food (except for the quail)...the most interesting moment happened around noon on Saturday when time stopped and everyone in the conference hall melted away. I stood lost in a conversation that led in a direction I never expected. The rest of the day...fifteen hours passed in a blur but yet every moment is etched in memory. How it happened? I have no answer. It was completely unexpected. Welcomed but not something I even realized was happening. I was swept away. I've never had that happen before. No concerns, no worries. It all just flowed. It continues to flow.

Now that is awesome. In one of the Star Trek movie, I think they called that experience a perfect moment in time. Does not happen nearly enough. Enjoy it and treasure it.

Glad to see you had a great trip!
