full_moonThe moon’s out in full force tonight and it just feels like a Rumi kind of evening, don’t you think? :

“sit with your friends; don’t go back to sleep.

Don’t sink like a fish to the bottom of the sea. Surge like an ocean, don’t scatter yourself like a storm.

Life’s waters flow from darkness.

Search the darkness, don’t run from it. Night travelers are full of light, and you are, too; don’t leave this companionship.

Be a wakeful candle in a golden dish, don’t slip into the dirt like quicksilver.

The moon appears for night travelers, be watchful when the moon is full”
