Ruminating



Everything that is made beautiful and fair and lovely is made for the eye of one who sees.
                                                        

It may be that the satisfaction I need depends on my going away, so that when I come back, I'll find it at home.


The quieter you become, the more able you are to hear.

(All quotes from Rumi -- a Thirteenth Century Persian poet, jurist, Islamic scholar, theologian, and Sufi mystic.)

Thank you, Vicki, for sharing the beauty that your eye sees. You have no idea how much it helps, some days.

The eyes have it! For those that don't have working eyes, like Steve Wonder or Ray Charles they give us wonderful music to listen with our ears. What a gift blindness has given them
