Beyond Ideas

My favorite Rumi of all:

Wheat Fields at Auvres, 1890
~ Vincent Van Gogh ~

Out beyond ideas of rightness and wrongness,
there is a field. I will meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about
language, ideas, even the phrase each other
doesn't make any sense.

~ Rumi ~


Note & pictures from my friend George Sfedu:

"March 1st is MARTISOR DAY in Romania, a hugely popular day, when boys and men buy martisor miniatures tied with the traditional red and white string, which girls and women wear pinned to their outfits for, at least, one day. Often, Snowdrops are also given to the girls. The photograph you see here is of a Snowdrop flower from my terrace. Happy Martisor to all the women friends reading this post!"

Thanks George!
