Happy Belated Birthday, Rumi

I was working (if you can call it that!) at Sugar n’ Spice yesterday when I found out it was Rumi’s 802nd birthday, so I wasn’t able to add this post. I’m sure, being the kind of man Rumi was, he had already forgiven me…


And yes, that is a garbage truck and surely there is some symbolism there, but I’m not quite sure what it is. Breathe in peace, breathe out the garbage?

  3. Ha! as in Happy day to Rumi! And I think it’s breathe in garbage, breathe out peace, but don’t quote me. Great site here about such things: http://www.shambhala.org/teachers/pema/tonglen1.php (sorry, don’t know how to insert a link here).

  4. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.

    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is
    entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
