"There is a path from me to you that I am constantly looking for."

A friend recently wrote me that she and her friends would read Rumi aloud in high school and laugh. Now, she says, Rumi invites pause, if you will.

I love him.

"Today, like every other day, we wake up emptyand frightened. Don't open the door to the studyand begin reading. Take down the dulcimer.
Let the beauty we love be what we do.There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground."

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.

-Jalāl al-Dīn Rūmī
