parsley // black velvet chiclet // geranium // Bleet & Oliver // thyme // Oliver // juniper // Virgil

This being human is a guest house. 
Every morning is a new arrival. 
A joy, a depression, a meanness, 
some momentary awareness 
comes as an unexpected visitor...
Welcome and entertain them all. 
Treat each guest honorably. 
The dark thought, the shame, the malice, 
meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in. 
Be grateful for whoever comes, 
because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.


Right on Rumi ! thanks for the reminder
