My blog is on food, agriculture, water and this and that. But, I have never posted anything that can be called ‘this and that’. Today, I make an exception and post something by Rumi. I do hope it is really Rumi, because my source is FB page on Rumi and FB, as we all know, is not the most trustworthy site! I post this because I like it. And it strikes a familiar chord, somewhere….

I said: What about my eyes?

God said: Keep them on the road.

I said: What about my passion?

God said: Keep it burning.

I said: What about my heart?

God said: Tell me what you hold inside it?

I said: Pain and sorrow.

He said: Stay with it. The wounds are the place where Light enters you.
