  1. This was again beautiful and beautifully stated. Thank you. You certainly have heard this poem, but I’ll repeat it anyway:

    Even after all this time
    The sun never says to the earth
    “You owe me”
    Look what happens with a love like that
    It lights the whole sky

    It is supposed to be by Hafiz, a Sufi master, but is in actuality a construct of an American Sufi who says it came to him in a dream as a translation of Hafiz’s work. Either way, I love the sentiment and it rings true with your post. Happy new day! Week! Month1 Year! Life!

    1. Oh, yes! It’s one of my most favorite. Thank you, Spencer. I like Happy Life. In college a boyfriend’s family made me a birthday cake. His stepmom ran out of room for “happy birthday Tanya,” so it became a “Happy Tanya” cake. I’ve always held that memory well.
