  5. Fantastic.

    One of my favorite quotes is from Rumi, actually:

    When we are dead, seek not our tomb in the earth,
    but find it in the hearts of men

  6. Lovely, it's raining on our flower right now. Good reminder for me to use words and not raise my voice to my children!

  9. Raising your voice is just easier. Nice reminder that being louder shouldn't be necessary to make your point.

  14. Rain? I'm a big fan -- probably because I'm a SoCal native...

  18. It is nice to see you quote Rumi. He was a Soofi (Spiritualist). I believe in a lot of doctrines of sufism.
