“Today, like every other day,
we wake up empty and frightened.
Don’t open the door to the study and begin reading.
Take down a musical instrument.
Let the beauty we love be what we do.
There are hundreds of ways
to kneel and kiss the ground.”
Though there’s no place to get to.
Don’t try to see through the distances.
That’s not for human beings.
but don’t move
The way that fear makes you move.”
by Rumi, 13th century
