Journeys end in lovers meeting

The minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.

Lovers don't finally meet somewhere,
they're in each other all along.


-From Essential Rumi
by Coleman Barks



Just thought I'd share. 

Life is running me pretty hard right now, but this struck a lovely chord inside me and I wanted to tell the world that I identify with it.

    2. That is a lovely story. :) I feel the same about the connection I have with my husband - that there was an invisible cord binding us together over the thousands of miles between us.

    1. I only just discovered Rumi myself, through a bizarre combination of reddit comments on bestiality. Yeah. When you let it, a line of questioning can take you to the strangest places....

  5. That was very lovely. :)

    Yes, I also want to keep sharing those random things in a FB like setting for blogland, but Fet doesn't seem to fully meet that need and then of course the moment is gone. I know we don't have to share EVERYTHING, but there are some opportunities for small snippets that aren't quite blogs... whre can we share those? Twitter? Oh my.

    1. Fet doesn't quite hit the spot for me either, clearly. I tend to be too verbose for twitter. So my blog will have to do until I learn to whittle down a bit.

    2. Twitter is awesome. I highly recommend it. It's like a large instant-message screen with everyone you choose to follow participating.

    That is lovely, and something with which both Mrs. AP and I identify. Thank you for sharing. You're a wonderful woman who added a bright spot to my night.

    Stay SINful

    1. I want to know why I haven't known this Rumi person before.... seems like a serious gap in my education somewhere.

      I'm so glad too! Thank you!
