Beyond Ideas of Wrongdoing and Rightdoing


"I'll Meet You There"  (Acrylic on canvas)  ORIGINAL available HERE

~Poetry by Rumi

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field. I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase "each other" doesn't make any sense.

I am heading to the San Juan islands (off the coast of Washington) with my little family until the third of September so it will be very quiet around here.  Enjoy the rest of your summer, beautiful people!
