If you are seeking, seek us with joy
For we live in the kingdom of joy.
Do not give your heart to anything else
But to the love of those who are clear joy,
Do not stray into the neighborhood of despair.
For there are hopes: they are real, they exist -
Do not go in the direction of darkness -
I tell you: suns exist.

- Jalal-ud-Din Rumi

(taking your word on that, my sufi friend.)

And in sun related news, I saw one little bee out for a cleansing flight, though she is unlikely to survive it. Heard bees buzzing in one hive, silence from another. 2 out of 3 are good bee signs. I put together a farm-related resume, and applied for a gardening job at a fancy restaurant-with-a-garden. Don't know that I can actually handle responsible employment, but I am proud of myself anyway. Sun is nice, even cold icy sun.


  1. Yes, suns exist. Many kinds. There is proof of that here this morning. In a few minutes, I'm going out into its light to do some garden clean-up. I hope you're able to find sunlight of some kind there too, megan. Take care.

  2. More than good bee signs here today. It's still cold, but the sun shines, the earth softens, bees buzz. Stirrings of life even in the pain. God bless.
